Re: Tires

Why don't you get the exact ones from the factory? Those look pretty good. Plus your going to keep it for like 6 months right?

Re: Tires

I want them for the speed rating.

Yes I am keeping it for 6 more months.

And when I trade in the truck, I'll put the old ones back on and sell these to you guys for a smoking deal!

Re: Tires

go for it Joe. they will be saleable and the price looks good.

on my xj, i went to tirerack, got the price, printed it out, went to discount tire, they gave me a better deal all mounted and balanced.

take a ride to Huntington, go see CUZ Jimmy at All Weather Tires they make good deals for cash!

Re: Tires

Do they have a website?


I would like to see what they have over the internet before I take a drive out there.

Re: Tires

I don't think that there's a website, the place is pretty ghettoed out. Give them a call for a price at 631 423 8473. The price will include mounting and balancing. Also if you pay cash there's no sales tax.

Re: Tires

the place i am talking about has been there for ~40 years. Its a family business. one of the guys I know from Huntuington Station. I used to work there at Rosa Cycles down on NY Avenue. Jimmy I forget their last names. they have like 10 bays plus another 10 guys in the driveway doing tires. i dont care when, day or night, if they are open, you have 4 tires in like 15 minutes NO BS. and they always negotiate for cash.

Re: Tires

Ahh ok, this place is definetly different. There are NO bays at the NY discount tire that I go to, they actually work outside. Thanks for the info!

Re: Tires

I got tires for my GF IS250 in Huntington. Everywhere was quoting me $289-$320. A tire. I got them there for $239. A tire mount and bal. And they were the only ones who had them in stock. I forgot the name of the place but it was like right in the middle of the road and they had 2 buildings. I'll find out the name tomorrow.

Go to tire rack and compare those tires vs any other tire vs the stock Fortera HL. The fortera HL is prolly the last tire on the list to choose. Sucks in snow and tread wear compared to the other tires. Damn i hate good years. I hate mine now.

Joe, I buy tires not only for performance reasons but for looks, those seem to have the performance down but they look like crap imho, i like fancy treads and good ratings. LOL

But its only for 6 months so if those fit the budget and give you what you want get em.

I like pirelli tires too, did you look at them at all?
