    Buying the SRX 18s?
    Gobs of that green tire stuff?
    I dont think the SRX wheels will fit (hasnt this been discussed before?).

    I (for the moment) plan to use the goop. I have already had a nail in my EMT cost me $40 to fix (instead of posted $20) @ Goodyear shop. I can't justify the cost/wear/poor wet performance associated with the EMT, and plan to buy a spare TPS just in case.

    Current plan price 4xGS-D3 = $800 (incl delivery, factoring in the $75 rebate), plus the spare TPS (assume $80) and a bottle of goop (assume $10). Puts me <$900 plus mouting, balancing etc.

    Replace with 4 Stock EMT's $1350 (delivered) plus moutning balancing, etc.

    It's a thought, PM with an idea of what $ you might want to see, what are you running instead?

    Re: Tire Choices for STOCK sizes

    I wish they made a 555R-II in the V size.. They are very limited in size right now, as they are new.. Drag Radial compound with a stiff sidewall.. Now that would be a great dry traction tire...

    But my vote goes to the GS-D3s..

    yep, been discussed, i think the offset was a bit off...I'm old and senile

    so, some goop, a cig-lighter air pump, and non-EMTs and you'd be comfortable taking family trips in it?

    thanks.

    Re: Tire Choices for STOCK sizes

    it's cuz the SRX spare is 17"... And the tire is a 145/70/17 => 25" tall... way to short.

    Those items, along with OnStar and/or your cell phone for major blowouts.

    I intend to go GS-D3's when it is time and carry goop and a pump. I suppose there is some risk to this approach, but I'm willing to live with it.

    Got a flat on my other car over the weekend... looked like a friggin' rose thorn!!

    No idea (if they are any good) but they sure are pricey (for non-EMTs). Hmm... why aren't these on the TireRack Website? things that make you go hmmm...

    Add these to the list - of tires that will fit in STOCK size.

    Re: Tire Choices for STOCK sizes

    My Goodyear F1 GS-D3's arrived today, exactly 30 hours after I ordered them from Tire Rack. Pleasantly surprised that the 2-3 day delivery actually gets done in 1! I will be installing them tomorrow and will report my impressions. BTW, they look REALLY cool.

    Tirerack delivery times are down-right spooky sometimes... if they were any faster... tires would arrive before you ordered them
