You guys in California can't relate, but I want good grippy tires in Kansas for ice and snow. I'm willing to pass on run-flats to get them. Michelin Pilot HXMXM4 run flats didn't last (18,000!), and I'm thinking of trying Michelin Sport A/S. Not many choices in this size. I put Goodyear Trip Treds on my Lexus SC even though they were not exactly the spec size, and they were great but none are available now (strike).

Cincin:
I believe the Goodyear strike was settled on December 29. Tires should start appearing at the dealers again shortly.

This is what I bought
Dub-------Dirty Dog 20" chrome rims
520-285-34 with Tire Pressure Monitor holes in rear of rim and Air Pressure Valve on front for easy air access.
Pirelli 255/35/20 Rosso's. No more run flats or odd size tires& rims, I love it.
I used to have my rear and front lowered using the 1 inch lower bolt on all four corners but the car didn't react very well and was bottoming out. If you lower the vehicle using these bolts, be careful of the front. It had a tendency to settle to much and the ride up front, will make you think your riding in a low rider.
