Seriously, why cant this hick state have better roads? So i got a flat today, a pot hole. Punctured the sidewall on my front right tire. You cant fix a side wall hole, i needed a new tire. But i wasnt gonna spend 90 bucks on another Good year RSA. ANd i wasnt gonna put one good tire on the front. SO i bought two tires for the front. Good Yeah assurance. 270 bucks. Im getting so far in debts its scary. Not to mention my car looks funny now cause my front tires are bigger than the back tires. I do like the fact that these tires have a 80,000 mile tredware warranty, so i can do all the peel outs i want.

I'm from Michigan as well. I know how you feel. But then again we have probably the worst winter (at least for roads) of anywhere in the US. In the day the snow melts to slush, gets into all the cracks in the road, and freezes again during the night. Cycle repeats from October to April.

LOL you think roads get bad in michagan? You should check out AZ. They have to repave the freeways once every 2 years cause the sun kicks the freeways ass. The main streets aren't that bad. Bud the Highways/freeways have this lovely habbit of getting a rather large long crack in the road right were your right front or left tire should be. Its noisey and bad for your tires.

Luckly enough for Arizona we dump tons of money into the freeways/roads/highways, so if somethen breaks it gets fixed quick.

Goodyear Assurance is incredibly overpriced for what it is, with the power you're making you should have some real performance tires.

Clare is located in northern Mid-Michigan

yeah im kinda pissed with the tires as well. I told the guy i needed some good road gripping tires. Im shredding these tires on the pavement. So i called them up and told them about it, i think they are kidna pissed at me, but whatever. So the guy is gonna order me some continental extreme contact tires. Zrated that are also seasonal. I did a peel out today with the tires, i left a tire marks no less than 15 feet long. And that was after driving them around and breaking them in.

next time you need tires go to Gratiot Wheel & Tire on Gratiot in Roseville, i know its a drive from you but they are by far the best place in town

Gotcha beat...day after easter I busted 2 rims on the PA turnpike...luckily they agreed to pay my deductible...Of course that was almost a month ago and I still havn't gotten the check.
So the vr4 is still sitting on bent rims and flat tires.
