Or give me if these have been asked before, but I have a few tire related questions:

1. What is the minimum ambient temperature it is safe to drive on these tires?
2. How long can I expect them to last?
3. What is a trusted replacement location? My local Costco has the PS2's in stock, but can they be trusted and do they road force balance?

Thanks

40f is minimum temp but heads up at 50f. tires are rated for 20k miles. most get at least 15k. get the high end balance but no problem buying them at costco. what price did costco give you? just get the right tpc spec 1347 ps 2. those are the gm spec tires for ps2s

I just replaced my PS2 at just under 19K miles and almost at the wear bars. I have had mixed opinions with Costco. They did a bang up job on family members cars (Toyota Camry, Honda Ridgeline, BMW 540i) but was a disaster with a Volvo 240i. Forgot to balance two wheels so the car shuddered on the ride home on the freeway. Then when we brought it back, they acted like we were wrong for even bringing up their mistake. Needed to get to the store manager (not just the tire side) to clear it up. These were Costcos in the Bay Area Northern California.

Costco lists several different PS2's in the correct rear size. Are these good prices?
