It was $700, but also includes alignment if needed. I got the the point after calling around that I wanted new tires so bad I would have paid twice that...LOL.

it will look so much better. just make sure you rotate every 5k and they last forever. also PLEASE put white letters OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

while you're at it, pick up a bottle of simple green to keep tires nice and black and leave the tire shine on the shelf.

Yea, I was planning on white letters on the outside.

No tire shine?? Seriously?? I love shiny tires!!! Hehe. My Rhino Liner has a clear coat that makes it glossy looking and shiny tires looks great with it.

This is a stupid question....

But will the bigger tire size affect the odometer or my speedometer?? Seems like it would.
