Thank you for the info. Will check when I get home today. I've heard about 5 years as well for "aging" tires especially if you plan to track the car. Mine are probably older though so I may change them depending on how old. Will have the verdict when I get home! Thanks again

FYI
Radial tire just got more Bridgestones in.
If you need tires give Bill a call.

Thanks for heads up on these tires as I just ordered a set for my Quicksilver

The Bridgestones are so much nicer to drive on, adding another 500 miles next weekend with the Cobra Experience run.

I just got a rear set from tire rack. International shipping was very fast. I got a very fresh DOT from July this year. Thanks to Chad.
By the way the front tires are much "cheaper" here than in the US, I advice to check European prices first. Shipment should be around 130USD:)

Has anyone using the Bridgestone 345/35/19 and 265/40/18 tires had any tire contact with the inside edges of the fenders ? Does this happen with standard suspension or replacement with lowered ride height ?

Zero issues on mine with 3000 miles on the Bridgestones. My 06 is stock suspension. I can definitely say they are way better then the Goodyears

My car has Bridgestones and is lowered, no contact.

Thanks , the comments were very helpful . I am having trouble finding a diagram that shows the lifting points for lifting the car to remove the wheels so I can change the tires . Can anyone help with that , the dealer I've used since buying the cars hasn't been able to help .

Always thought that was a cool idea, but where the heck do you find it?
same place you order the nitrous for your office :)

I personally think nitrogen is of no real benefit, especially for what some places charge. But our Costco has two free tire air filling stations that seem to dispense nitrogen... Does it hurt? Probably not. Does it help? Who knows. But if it doesn't cost anything, and it's one of the only places I know of that doesn't charge to fill tires, why not? It does say it won't operate if below 15psi so no empty/refill but a go down to 15 a couple of times and you get 1/2 or so every time.
