    Man, I'm glad I have wimpy tire sizes for autoX. One rear tire would almost buy a new set of 4.

    Tirerack has a lot of options in this size for significantly less money. $1700 bucks is crazy.

    OK, so that link didn't work (where did the new comment system go??), but you get the point.

    the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position available from the tire rack would have probably given you 90+% of the performance for 60% (or thereabouts) of the price. they tested well against the pilot super sports in tire rack's testing.

    As Cobryson mentioned, spending about 10 seconds resulted in 11 matches.
    So what's the deal here with "we found absolutely nothing"?

    Wow, so tire costs for a Vet are over 15 cents a mile (including the taxes and install).

    Tire rack has a set of 4 for the Z51 for under $1100 before shipping.

    I would still get Pilot Super Sports, but not the ZP crap. Save $100 per front, $120 per rear - and they're just better tires. The $440 I save will pay for a lot of flatbed service in the event I need to be rescued. And remember, the only instance in which ZP tires will be any help is just a simple, small puncture - you hit something in the road and take a big chunk out of a ZP tire, you're not going anywhere.

    $100 cheaper in a few hours would have sent me to the valley

    Then again, having a set of Bridgestone S-04 PP tires on my '14 M6 would have me choosing them over paying nearly double for tires that perform only slightly better.

    is it really 13k miles on these tires? or is it more like 7k because the trip to Detroit was on winter tires?

    This sites editors/writers quality seems to be going down.

    It's a 2-way street, @opfreak. Read closely-13,000 miles on the tires, ~18,000 on the car. There's your discrepancy.
