Well it feels like I got a new Vette.
I installed new Sumitomo HTRZ III tires on my car last weekend.
WOW!!!!!!! what a difference. I got rid of the original (Noisy, hard as a hockey puck) Good Year run-flats and went with the Sumitomo's.

We drove to Akron Ohio on the Run-flats and could hardly hear each other speak on the concrete highway. We also felt every joint in the road.
Installed the new tires down there and had a much more pleasurable drive home.
These tires are quiet, smooth and stick like glue to the road. Tire Rack rates them #1 in the performance tire category.

All said and done $532.00 US. plus $72.00 for Installation and balancing.
I think I got a great deal.
We also got to spend a fantastic long weekend with our friends in Ohio:canada:

Yup. That was shipped to my buddies house in Akron Ohio.
The funny thing is he is a Goodyear Exec, and he couldn't come close to this price with his employee discount.

That is an awesome price! You'd pay almost that much for just ONE runflat up here!

The Tire Rack is absolutely unbeatable!! I ordered 2 335/35 17's for the Diablo and $6?? taxes and shipping in, and 3 days later they were here....In Saskatoon!! There was no where else here that said they could even get them within 3 months, and at a very ridiculous price.
