Default new tires

I had to breakdown and purchase new rubber for the bonnie this weekend. The Michelin'* finally wore down. I purchased 4 Bridgestone Potenza RE-910 225/60 16'*. $370 out the door from Costco includes mounting, balancing, valve stems, free flat repair, free rotating, all that good stuff. Anyway, here are the pictures. Enjoy!



they only put in 30 psi per manufacturer'* ratings(so they say) but the tire looks a little low in this picture. I'll probably put 33 psi in 'em.

Good tires, those are the ones with the dual tread right? Outer layer wears down to a new tread...I stuck a set of these on my GTP just before I sold it (sigh).

Looks nice on the car

thanks and yes you're right about the tread. As hot as it is here the rubber just seems to melt right off my rims...of course my driving style may also have something to do with that.

Hey 96AZ, nice tires...are the Turanza LST'* by Bridgestone the same way with the tread? I have them but don't remember if they wear down to new tread too.

The way the treads look in that pic almost make it look like a off road tire.
