Picked up some more tires today.

I live near a big Volvo junkyard. They sell used tires for $10 a piece.

I picked up 2 brand spanking new (almost) Khumo Ecsta Supras. and 2 Fancy looking snow tires.

I will put the khumos on the front monday, and put the 2 potenzas on the rear. I have since shredded the rears down to bald. So it was time to pick some up.

I saw one more Khumo at the junkyard. But not the 4th. I will go back next week and try and find that sucker. They seem to be $80 tires at the tire rack. So if I can't find another. Maybe I'll just pay retail.

The snows are 16s for my new 9000 beater project.

Ben, are they Ecsta Supra 712's? I've got Ecsta MX's on the A4 right now. I'll probably switch to Supra 712's next year though. The MX's only have a tread rating of 220. They're great on the auto-x track but they're wearing too quickly for street use. It'll be interesting to see how long the Supra's last you.

After waterfest I think I'll put the stock wheels and Dunlop's back on for the rest of the summer, maybe I'll be able to stretch these Kumhos through next season too If I only put them on for shows and track use.
