Our Mitsibishi L300 van has Continental tyres but I'm sure they're re-treads so they don't have the original tread moulding anymore. 8-) >Even if you can't order from them, www.tirerack.com is a good place >to read reviews of specific tires by buyers.

I have visited the Tirerack site before, though as you say it's difficult to justify ordering from them once shipping to Australia makes anything more pricey than buying via a local dealer. We don't have anything quite like it here in Australia (much smaller market I suppose), but I'll definitely check the reviews out some more. I like Dunlop because they used to be a wholly Australian company. 8-) Not really anymore but they still have a strong local presence here through motor racing connections.
