    Not in my budget range, but the 2019 Audi R8 is pretty sharp

    Yes it is! Not in my price range or taste category, though. :(

    I swapped the winter wheels off my Q7 last night. The summer tires are getting fairly worn, though, and they seem to be wearing unevenly. The outside of the tires is at 5/32" all around, but inside is at 3/32". I've never had tires do that before.

    I would normally replace by this level, but these are going to cost me about $1,200 to replace, so I'm going to bleed the very life from them first!

    Happily, I just finished up winter #3 with the Yokohama IG51v winter tires, and they are just a tiny bit under 11/32" tread depth. I find that stunning, considering about 15,000 miles on them and an original depth of 13/32". Blizzak or X-Ice tires would be nearly shot by that mileage.

    I did that with worn out winter tires, one year. Just left them on, because I knew they were going in the garbage, once I took them off. It was a great plan, until I hit a pothole and one of them blew, on the way to work. :(

    Could be a lottery ticket item ;)

    And a second lottery ticket to insure it!! Although why I'd want to drive it on the road surfaces of central PA, I'm not sure

    I am doing that with the Michelin X-Ice on my wife's car this year. Her summer tires need replacing, and I don't want to use the X-Ice again for next winter, so my plan is to mount a set of the IG51v on the 17" stock rims that currently have the summer tires once we get nearer to winter, then mount a set of all-seasons next year on the 16" rims I previously used for winter tires.

    Seems complicated, but that's what happens when several sets of tires come due for replacement all at once!

    I have a set of tires for my Econoline on order right now. Hopefully I'll be able to install them next week. I got good life out of the last set, though.... 24 years! :D
