^They are slow as hell. And their service is hit and miss. Last time I went in, I waited for 3 hours DESPITE having an appointment and then I was told my tires aren't actually there. Yea, I wasn't a happy camper.

^ i had a good experience buying snows on steelies last fall. i didn't wait too long. i was upset at the fact that he charges 3% more for visa transactions and didn't tell me this ahead of time. i paid debit, but was upset, as i put all transactions on my visa for the points.

bridgestone potenze re-o1r < are you running this just for the summer or
all season?

Potenza Re-o1R is a summer tire and it is not good on snow, look at Fuzion, I think its from bridgestone too)

I was using Potenza last winter and in snow I had to drive cautiously, this winter i have Fuzion and its much better in snow.

hi everyone - i am looking for summers only.

i did some research, the tires have a low wear value (140, i believe) and decided to pass. i am looking for something that are a little more value with a higher wear value - any idea what's out there?

also, with two kids in the back, i'm not sure if i need ultra performance tires anymore.

Well you can scan your local tire dealer or car dealer for that types of tires. Bridgestones is a good kind of tires. Good luck
