It's time for new tires @ 5700 miles... Has anyone seen or tried this tire? Or is it a mistake on Goodyear's web site?

Dont think it's a mistake, it must be a new tire. Good wet-traction... long life... and EMT?! Could it be possible?!

But 245/40 is a pretty short tire, you'll want to lower the car (MHO)!

I saw a set come into my local goodyear dealer when I was having tires put on. I didn't know they made GSD3's in EMT's either until I saw them. The one's that came in were for a C6. The gentleman drove from 3 hours away to get them as my dealer had the only set in the country at the time. The goodyear manager knew I was a former vette owner and thought i'd get a kick out of his bill -$2900!!! :holycrap:

The boys at Goodyear have got to be smoking some serious weed (or think that the public is), with that kind of pricing!!:tisk: I guess they think they are pricing for government contracts:bouncy:

I realized that Monday that Goodyear made the GS-D#'s in an EMT, but not in our size. :crybaby:

I am getting a credit on the run-craps and have the non run-flat version of the GS-D3's on order. Should be here next week.

You can get the convential tire (non-run flat) for $214 at tirerack.com. I've stopped using run flats since a spare can fit in the trunk well, and I haven't been snake-bit by a flat tire in a coon's age.

Convincing the dealer that I wanted a jack in the car when I bought it ws an interesting discussion, but I got one gratis.

I've got the run-flats and a spare in the back end. You never know if some road debris may sheer a tire and/or trash a wheel. If it does I've got it covered. If it happens to two wheels/tires I'm S.O.L. ;)
