Default nubbies, for the first time in my life!!! (6 - 800x600 pics)

This is the first set of BRAND-NEW tires that I have ever owned. Previously I have been getting used tires from my dad or online. I decided that the mounting and balance was costing me more than just getting a new set. I was doing a lot of research, and I was deadset on the Goodyear Assurance Triple Treads, but then I saw these on ebay. I know that crash and 95SLE run them with no complaints. I picked them up on ebay for $415.95 shipped and paid $38 for Sam'* Club to mount and balance them. Already in the first 5 miles of driving on them, I have noticed improvement. I know they are dirty and don't even look black, but here are my new Pirelli P-Zero Nero M+* 235/55/ZR17'*

Nice. After seeing how limited you are when it comes to a 255/50/17 i also am back to looking at 235/55/17s and the Zero Neros have been pretty high on my list.

Nice score Andrew.

Mine did well in the light snow and slush this winter.

Obviously you have deeper snow in Minnesota.
