Ugh man. My tires now have a 3-4 month back order. So im looking at Mich Pilot Sport A/*'* in the same size. They'll be a lil more though.

The guys at the place tried to sell me these Toyo FZ4'* but they supposedly suck really hard in wet and winter.

Look at the Proxes TPT. Directional tread really makes a difference. They perform well in our winters here, and even better with the siping. Good grip, especially in the size you're talking about. Probably the best tires I've had on a car.

Why is there a 3-4 month wait? thats kind of suprising. Thats one thing I liked about the Continental'* was that they were directional tires.

I dunno why they are so late. We got back our deposit from that store and are going somewhere else that has done tires for my dad. They wont put on anyhting besides what came from factory, some insurance thing.....so i guess im gonna go with stock size Mich Pilot Sport A/*'*. They'll hold up good for now till I really need that extra traction.
