I got them from Costco. Was $1,006 out the door after $70 off. Besides the tires themselves the price includes:
VA Tax, Tire Disposal, New valve stems (like $2 per), installation/mounting
Lifetime Road Hazard (free flat repair, or replace tire at pro-rated cost)
Lifetime Tire Rotation AND Balance (every 7,500 mi or as needed)
Right now the tire is so new, less than 200 miles on em. Already MUCH smoother cruising on the highway and less noise. I can tell the height increase slightly when getting in/out of the car.
Around town, i feel the ride is a bit squirmy going over bumps at angles or uneven surfaces. This could be because the tire is brand new, not broken in yet so there is going to be a little squirm due to the tread depth. Also i had let my old tires get down to 33/34 psi for a softer ride. These are at 36psi right now, and i am thinking maybe to go higher since we plus sized? They are def more comfy than the old tires if both are at 36 psi.
Lastly, i feel a bit more body roll when taking sharp turns at low speeds. This could be just because of more tread so the steering response is higher as the tire has more bite... but also because of the size increase. More rubber, taller tire, wider, more sidewall etc. .......still, love the SMOOTHness while cruising at speed!
