I need you guys help with tires for my GF AWD IS250
 
Someone poked a hole in the sidewalk of my GF tire. I've heard that with AWD vehicles that you should replace tires in pairs (either the 2 front or the 2 back) cause it could mess up your alignment and tranny. Is this true and what tires would you recommend

No need, just replace one tire. If it's not too expensive I'd suggested putting the same tire on as what the other 3 are.

OMFG I went to Mavis they wanted $340. a tire, and some bridgestone tire dealer said $319. Firestone doesn't stock them and they said they can get it by tomorrow but it was $280. So fat the dealer is the cheepest at $260. a tire. Mavis had the eagle f1 for $160. a tire which isn't bad. But I think I'm just going to replace the stocks at the dealer.

No. But my OEMs were low rolling tires (what ever that means).

Eagle GTs were only $500 shipped to my door step. Plus the $40 that the dealer charged me to mount them.

I tried to have a place price match tirerack.com prices when I need tires for my Jeep and they said that the price on that site was cheaper than what they got them for at cost :lol:
