8 new allroad tires today.
« on: November 06, 2006, 10:28:40 PM »
picked up new summer and winter shoes today.

new winters per the thread below were 225/55-17 Hankook Icebear W300's to replace some pretty well worn Dunlop M3's. first impressions are that they seem to have a softer sidewall than the M3's, with lower ultimate grip. that said, they are probably 90-95% as good for 60% of the price.

for summer, I also got some new Dunlop Sport Maxx in a 245/45-18. First impressions on those will come about march. I picked them up now to take advantage of the huge sale tirerack had on them (124 ea, vs 240ea list at the local discount tire). discount tire matched the sale+shipping.

then after all that, got an alignment done too. car rides awesome now. all vibes from the previously shot tires are gone!
