I have a set of Goodyear tires that I will pay you to take.<p>Goodyear GT ... about 500 miles, bought this spring. Will pay shipping and $100 if you take them.<p>Goodyear tires are good for swings, flaming necklaces, planters, boat bumpers...<p><i>Modified by petew at 3:04 AM 8-21-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: FV-QR (xman03)

Yesterday I could not say no to the $92US Tirerack is asking for the Yokohama AVS ES100; bought them for my 18'' Pegs to be used next year.<br>These tires are discontinued so I'm expecting that their build date might not be the freshest. I'll make sure these 280UTQG's won't last long with my new IPD Downpipe, ECU flash, CAI... humm there's a K24 hybrid around here somwhere.<BR><BR>

Re: TIRES TIRES TIRES! (Max Wells)

I've been driving a set in New England for the last 3 months. Grip in dry and wet conditions is excellent, noise is as good as a high performance tire gets. They do ride a bit on the harsh side as the sidewalls are very, very stiff. But the cornering and response benefits far outweigh any negatives. If you can still get the $50 rebate for a set of 4, they are a bargain. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (tachymetres)

I really like the Michelin PS2, expensive, and I got a bubble on the side wall of my last set. The grip they provide in dry/wet is great. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
