Why would you need run flats? You don't have them, so why would you need them now?

Unless that's a new option on 12 and up, they are not run flats.

Hrm, a couple of Tire shops said I needed run flats because that's what was on it? Apparently I was being fed a line of BS?

Yeah, I think it was fountain tire that said they were run flats. Yet another reason why I'm very happy with my decision to go with Kal tire.

Yeah, maybe when I win the lottery I'll upgrade those rims.

I'd do eventually want to get a nice set of black rims, but much more reasonably priced. Like $200-$400/rim.

Hrm, they do look pretty good actually. I was leaning more toward black though. Are you saying you already have these rims and are selling them? Or you can order them for a great deal? Do they come in black? Oh and how much $$

Good thing I already spent my money on rims and tires. Picked up brand new Pirellis and brand new 45th anniversary rims for $1600!

P-Zero's are not run flats. If a tire shop told you that, stay away. Stay far, far away! They are

Well I actually stumbled on them by accident and yes, they are new. I got them home, cleaned them up, polished them, put a sealer on them and 2 coats of Americana paste wax so I could advertise the rims for sale, but...

I think I'm in love with them now! LOL LOL

Not sure I can say where I got them, but they were take offs from a shop car. I called asking about tire options and they told me about the Pirelli's they had. Went to look, they were new, best price I've found in Canada, and said I would take them. They called me back that afternoon and made me an offer for rims and tires and I grabbed at it!

For once I was in the right place at the right time.

I know they retail at $460 a wheel and yes you can get them in Black. I ordered them for my old car and yest they are sitting at the dealership. I can run them for winters but would rather not run such a nice rim. I know I can get them much closer to $400 for you if you'd like

Hrm, tempting, but I think I'll have to pass for now. Credit Card is taking a beating this month with tires, and having to fix the door from the attempting break in :(

I had some time on my hand...

If your going for the most Tread Wear(more Life) then it has to have a larger UTOG:IE:
TREADWEAR: 220
TRACTION: AA
TEMPERATURE: A

Nitto Motivo = UTQG: 560 A A (All Season)
Nitto Invo = UTQG: 260 A A (Summer Only)
Gmax as-03 = UTQG: 480 A A (All Season)
Falken 452 = UTQG: 300 AA A (Summer Only)(Front Original Size Only)
Perilli P Zero = UTQG: 220 AA A (Summer Only)
Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 = UTQG:280 AA A (Summer Only)
Goodyear Eagle GT = UTQG: 400 AA A (All Season)
Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS = UTQG: 400 A A (All Season)
Continental Extreme Contact DWS = UTQG: 540 A A (All Season)
BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 = UTQG: 340 A A (Summer Only)
Cooper Zeon RS3-S = UTQG: 300 A A (Summer Only)
VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA = UTQG: 280 AA A (Summer Only)


Here's a good site for description of tires:
http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...010&vid=016070
More Info: Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) Uniform Tire Quality Grading is a relative comparison system. Tires are graded by manufacturers in three areas: treadwear, traction and temperature.

The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear of a tire when tested carefully under controlled conditions. For example, a tire graded 400 should have its useful tread last twice as long as a tire graded 200. Treadwear grades are only valid for comparisons within a manufacturer's product line.

Traction grades represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on asphalt and concrete test surfaces. As of 1997, the traction grades from highest to lowest are "AA","A","B" and "C". The grades do not take into consideration the cornering or turning performance of a tire.

Temperature grades represent a tire's resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled laboratory test conditions. The grades from highest to lowest are "A","B" and "C" . The grade "C" corresponds to the minimum performance required by federal safety standard.

WHAT IS TPMS?

Example for shipping Nitto Motivo to Quebec:

I just saw this for the threads on our tires:

CHECK TIRES THREAD DEPTH

GREEN = 8/32 or Greater
YELLOW = 7/32 to 4/32
RED = 3/32 or Less
