Had four G015 215/65/16 Yokohama's fitted about two weeks ago at Hi-Q Bredasdorp to replace my G012's. Cost me R 6720 fitted,balanced and VAT included. Alignment extra. Tiger in Somerset could not nearly match the price.
Really satisfied at this stage.

Was quoted R2200 per tire and would have to wait.

So I go to Auto Tyre Menlyn yesterday have my AT3's fitted yesterday...
When the invoice comes, Johan tells me they got a better price than expected from the Dunlop distributor,
so I only pay R1877 per tyre, VAT included!

Four 215/60/17's, new valves and balancing + wheel alignment = R7 829-37.
They always give me great service there !  ;D

Any longer term feedback on these tires?
Is the road noise at highway speed manageable?
Effect of fuel consumption?

I havent really had them in all conditions yet.
Economy: Havent noticed a difference.
Comfort: Havent noticed a difference.
Cornering: Not a fast driver but it felt like the car was fish taling on a spirited corner. I found this weekend that the tires were under inflated so this may have had something to do with them.
Road Noise: Cant complain, I drive with radio off and can hear my engine and stock intake, turbo etc so I think these are good. I will be driving to the Wacky Wines this weekend, however I think it will be wet so noise will be from the rain.

Just remember, these have to be rotated every 5000km and not 15000km.

Update: So after finding a set of 16" rims I pulled the trigger on a set of Yoko G015s after hearing some good reviews.
So far I'm happy.
Quiet. Good dry grip. Wet grip as expected is less than the G95s. No noticeable change in fuel economy yet. Plus they look pretty rugged.
Will update after my Mozambique trip
