How to save money on M3 tyres?

Hi guys,
I dropped into my local Bridgestone dealer to get a quote for tyres for my 19 equipped M3.

Fronts: AUD$800 each, around 700us
Rears: AUD$895 each, around 800us

Basically, that is a crapload of money and has entertained the thought of sourcing tyres overseas somewhere.

Does anyone have a preferred source of tyres that is not local or has anyone dealt with purchasing tyres abroad?

I've found www.tirerack.com to have some of the best deals on tires. If I want cheaper than that I usually hit up e-bay.

well, since you don't have tire rack in aus, you may want to check out other on-line tire sources.

i can get the 19" ps2 for about $1,500 usd from tire rack here in germany so thats pretty much what you're looking at in aus.

i say purchase them from your local dealer since that should include mounting & balancing too!
