For both tires and wheels, shipping and road hazard it was a few bucks over $1600.

Tire rack for the rims, treaddepot for the tires. I do have one minor issue with one tire I noticed upon further inspection which treaddepot is shipping me out another one today. A glob of rubber was left from the manufacturing process and also created a low void above it. It might have been nothing, but also might have not allowed the wheel to seal properly. Don't want to get stuck somewhere wheeling, so better safe than sorry and their customer service agreed it was a defect.

Order yourself another wheel and have an additional spare because that will not hurt you at all.

I plan on it, current wheels and tires are very low on tread and needed at least 4 before winter ( have a feeling it's going to be bad since Lake Ontario hit record warmths), I live due east of the lake and lake effect here can pile up quickly. We average 190-230" of snow a year.... Except last winter which we didn't even break 90". I'll have a full size spare and rim to cycle in before the 5k rotation cycle. :smile:

Teaser....

One wheel/ tire gave them problems when balancing so he did it twice ( unmounted/ remounted) and got it within a low enough amount of weight so it shouldnt be felt. These were road force balanced so I'm confident I won't notice it since I never had with a Road force before. Hoping to get them on tomorrow with an alignment from Firestone.

.....for your viewing pleasures! I'm astonished at how quiet these tires are for such as aggressive tread. Guys at Firestone who did the alignment were drooling over the setup, one had a TB and was trying to lift his. Always good to make contacts, cut me a price a lifetime alignment :thumbsup:
