I've seen a few people around here have them... at any rate, I've got 17" alloy rims, and high-performance tires. 28,XXX miles and they're needing replacement.
First: The indicator is pretty worn, but not really bad. I'll need tires before the snow flies- is it a dumb idea to intend another 1,000 miles on my drive to CO? I hoped once I get out there I can find a shop that will rotate them as needed, my current does.
The tire recommended: Pirelli P6 Four Season 90H (P205/50R17/XL) tire. (Current is V-rated)... will an H over a V really gain me much more significant use? What am I trading in performance?
Pirelli's: $114 each. Ouch.
I was told: I don't have a lot of options for a tire with that rim. Seriously?
