Fair enough, but that's really the least practical way of rotating. Hopefully you don't roast that one corner in a single session or two, you'll be stuck out there.

Black wheels on a Topaz Blue car, don't think so.

I have never found tires to be a good value in Canada.

Goodyear dealer sold me a set of 245x35x18 F1 GS-D3s for 353.35 each. Everywhere else I called they were over 400. Will be installed and mounted on wednesday. His number is 905 566 4440. Located in Mississauga (Dundas and Mavis)

Not a bad price. How long have you been running these tires, do you like them?

I've had contact 2s for this season. I liked that tire a lot, especially in the rain it was excellant. My backs are still good so I will keep them until they wear out so I'm going to be mixing brands until next year. I'm surprised that my fronts wore out before the backs.

A friend of mine recommended the F1s to me as well...

Your fronts wore out because Shannonville, esepically the inner track is very very bad on tires, brutal.
I burned through a front set of S03s in just 2 events.
