Default New tire deal i got!

I put a new set of tires on my car from FIRESTONE the Bridgestone POTENZA Grid 019. Total came out to 350 from firestone. That's a hard deal to beat anywhere with lifetime rotations and balancing

Good deal! You will like these tires. Inflate about 34 psi to keep down the wheel hop and make sure the alignment is bang on. I don't bother with rotation, it is a waste of time. I get 70,000 to 80,000 miles from my tires.

How is the road noise on them? I can't stand noisy tires on my car? I bought Goodyear Assurance comfort tread tires and they are the most quiet tires I have had yet. Just a bit pricey.

The G009/G019 is not the quietest tire. My winter tires are actually quieter.

Got some Cooper Weather-Masters 4 for $80. Winter tires are much larger than stock though, 205/70/15 compared to 195/65/15.

The G019 replaced the G009 due to excessive tire wear (20K on 2 sets). Remember it's a high performance tire...any high performance tire is going to be rough on the road but respond really well to ur input. The tripletreads are really good tires but they are touring tires and not as responsive as the G009.
