    Thanks, I appreciate all your help. If i could though, seeing I need new tires now would be the time to go up to 17's. Is it affordable for around $500 or 6?

    I'm looking for the best ones for $100 or 120 a piece. I've heard of Yokohama, are they good and which ones exactly?

    If you are looking locally...
    Go to the store. Tell them how much you have and see what they can offer you. We can't help much with local stores pricing.
    Although...most local stores hate to hear you are going somewhere else.
    I lie to get better prices. If a place offers something...tell them such and such was $50 lower.

    I won't pay over $10 a wheel to have a tire mounted and balanced.

    Alright thanks man, your cool as hell. Preciate all your time.

    Any of you guys know how to get into becomming a mechanic? Is the only way through NASCAR school with a $35,000 loan for a yr or could you start off in a dealership doing oil changes and work your way up?

    Been a fairly good customer at Discount for years now. Two cars get tires there. And the T/A has two sets of tires. So yeah...they better stick with the $10 a wheel...or they might lose me.

    If they pitch a fit....
    I just tell him...Big O offered to do it for $10 when I called them, but you happened to be on the way home, so I stopped to see if you could do it.
    And don't forget the last time you guys did it for $10 each.

    Fuzion ZRi
    Dunlop SP Sport A2 Plus
    BFGoodrich g-Force Sport
    Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval

    Just a few that might fall in the price range.

    Haha that's awesome, about the $10 thing. I'll have to try it, find out names of dealers around here. Thanks for the brands.

    Discount was pissed.
    When I ordered my Nitto 315/35/17 DR's (rears) from them I needed my BFG KDW's (fronts) mounted on my brand new TTII's...so the guy said he would do it for free.
    Then a kid dinged one.

    They had to fix it....and didn't even get $$ for mounting it.


    Anyways...I am out.
    Good luck getting the tires bro!
