No Pics yet, they are coming though...I was looking at getting the same tires as sweet-the hankook sts, but then i got this email saying my uncle just bought tire shop in philie and wants to send me some kdws for graduation :)

I told him about the other tires, toyos, hankook, etc. but I guess winners can't be choosers...

Since I have a RWD FX and am going to Pitt this summer for grad school I figure that I'll need snow tires for the winter anyway so maybe I was BS'ing myself about the hankooks getting me through a winter anyway...

So my question is when should I put these bad boys on? I only have 18k miles :lol:

By the time I get these on, I may have some more money from working hard this summer and maybe will lower if I'm doing this already...but don't tell my girl ;) we'll see!

... and your uncle in Philly owns a tire shop, so you'll be able to get some real snows (and steels!) when that day comes *cough*yaluckybastard*cough*

IMMEDIATELY. It's a big difference.

wow really? shouldn't I at least wait a little bit to get more out of my tires? I am dying to try em out though, it's really hard for me to imagine the fX feeling any better because of some new tires, hope I learn quick ;)

haha. True. I'll ask him when he gets here.

Not sure how many people would be in a gb for tires though!

I doubt he can beat internet prices you find though. What was the cheapest so far on the kdws?

$218 on Tire Rack, but the place I got mine from (a local store) charged $232 including mount and balance (and $22 for insurance each), so I paid "only" $212 if the $20/wheel M/B price I've seen is average. Of course, the Governator got his 7.75%, so it still came to $1100, but I figure if you add in the shipping I'd have to pay to get 'em to Cali for out-of-state, it'd still come to about the $80 I paid in sales tax. I'd call around first, honestly.

Tires can be the single biggest improvement you can make to your car's handling. Congrats on getting new shoes for your baby.
