Good price on 265/35/ZR/19's

Needing a new pair of rear tires (PS2's), I went searching and found a pretty decent price @ www.discounttires.com. 2 tires shipped: $659.98. This is about $70 less for the tires and half as much for shipping compared to Tire Rack.

I would suggest you go with the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11, $290 per tire and I heard they are amazing. New Flagship Extreme Performance tire from Bridgestone. Michelins are just so expensive.

Im also looking for some new tires.. I love the PS2 but want a bit more wear. Anything that is close in performance but will last longer than 5K miles.

Conti 3's or maybe the Bridgestone RE050 that was on my 335

Anyone want to advise? Thanks

My fronts are still good and since I don't want to mix brands, I need to stick with the PS2's this time. Next time I will go with something with a bit more treadwear.

Posted in your other thread as well. 5k miles is way too little for the PS2s. Get your alignment checked.
