I have had nothing but bad luck with any firestone bridgestone tires.
they never last as long as they say and I had a few that got sidewall bubbles.
never again.

Nice score Jimbo!! I remember your tires, they DO look pretty nice!

I myself will be looking for tires soon, I think mine are pretty much done (and only two match). It'll be my first time buying 17s, so hopefully I can get 4 tires for not much more than $400.

Jim:
Do you like the tires? Reason I ask is that there is a set on Craigs List with 50 miles on them for $100 easch but the tires are 3 years old. Been in storage since they came off the guys Benz.

Good deal, Jim. I wonder if the manager could crunch some numbers on a set of four Toyo Proxes? : )
