No affiliation whatsoever, but thought I would share my recent experience with having to replace 2 of my front tires.

My front and rears were at different mileage intervals due to having replaced 2 tires during last winters weather. As a result the fronts were toast and the newer ones are at about 60%. I didn't want to replace all 4, b/c the 2 rears were perfectly good. So I hit ebay to look for 2 p zeros that were used. Found Nationwide tires out of Florida. Got each tire for $100 ea including shipping. The tires got to me in Memphis within 3 days and they were exactly as described. No patches and late DOT production.

Took to firestone this morning and they mounted they for 88 bucks. I have the lifetime alignment and balance, so I was good to go. I know firestone is hit or miss on this forum, but I have had good luck with one local shop.

This saved me from having to replace all 4 tires or at worst having to buy 2 new tires and put me in the same predicament down the road. Now I can evenly wear down all 4 and replace with Continental Extremecontact DWS when the time comes!!

And my download from my Firestone showing the alignment specs.
