My Pal Kieth (Please have Larmo check the spelling......... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sheeplove.gif) ) noticed on the lift yesterday while at eye level, that my tires are tired....... and in need of a full change out to new rubber. A good eye is always good.

Keith (SP / er,......Larmo) was correct..............

The sidewall at the or near the bead is showing hairline cracks (as are we all) and the rear set of two are measurable less endowed......... (Again,....Larmo)

So the question is, is Tire Rack or other the way to go or there a better Tire Rack?

Or just bite the bullet and go the Newport Beach Porsche Dealer route to go all in on their offer to replace all four mounted and balanced for (.....the bargain price of....) $1267.00 plus tire disposal fees ( 20 bucks a tire) and disposal of the disposal wrapping needed in SoCal to dispose of disposal stuff,... add fees of 25 dollars a corner + an environment impact up-surcharge of 45.00 dollars per corner / to cover that hideous rubber-exposure after take off / that which is exposed to the sun or air in the human condition in SoCal not mounted. ......... it goes on and on.... And the air still sucks.


I'm thinking Tire Rack.............. Insight or what is your bad or best experience on a new set of treads?
