    So, how do you like these? I just found out about them and they sure seem like the perfect tire for my CTS.

    I see know one is recommending the RSA Goodyears as replacements. I done some reading up on the tire and a common complaint is the premature tire wear. Finding a Goodyear performance tire in the 45x18" size has proven difficult. I had to bite my tongue and buy Pirelli Zero all season tires 245/45/18. I'll see how well they perform.

    I just bought 4 Avon Tech M550 A/S from Tire Rack to replace the RS/As.

    WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! They are fantastic, and by far the best tires I have ever had, and I've has a lot. $87.00 each which is a bargain. Check em out on tirerack.com

    I just checked tirerack and they are $117 a piece. Do you have 17's if not than that might be the reason. Who is Avon Tech? Are they part of a different tire company?

    Avon Tyre is based in Great Britain, but they were purchased by Cooper Tire and are now manufactured in the US as well as Britain. I believe the Tech and racing tires are made across the pond, while Avon truck tires are made here. The Avon Tech series M500 and M550 A/S have received really good reviews from Consumer Reports (taken w/ a grain of salt) and TireRack.com likes them a lot, too. From my point of view, just about any premium performance tire will put the Goodyear RSA's to shame.
