bilzzaks are very, very soft but I find it hard to believe that you've burned through them in less then one season so far unless you drive like a jerk or have alignment/CAB issues.

Man, get your ad out of here.

On another note, I priced out myself some dunlop ultra summer tires for $430$ on tirerack. Gonna have em shipped to my new addy in San Marcos. I suggest cross border for tires, the same rubber retails for $800 here...

okay, i tried deleting but i could not. i reported my own post to the mods for them to pass judgement. i did not mean to offend.

just like any other bimmer owner, i wish to save money on mods and spread the word... is all

edit: you are based in CA USA... you guys are lucky to have easy access to tirerack. we cannucks get hosed here on cars, tires, parts, etc. every dollar saved counts, me thinks
