Tires / Tyres

Garage
These guys have em, not cheap though:

Shop for Pirelli P-Zero Tires - Discount Tire/America's Tire

Get same or better performance and handling for nearly 1/2 price with Kumho XS or Hankook V12. Also available at America's Tire.

I always order through discount tire, sometimes you can catch free shipping or buy 3 get 1 free, then find a local indy tire place to install them

Tire Rack

Prices on line through Tire Rack are usually very competitive. And you can get a lot of information from their website. Since you're in the Chicago area and they're near Indy, you can have the tires within a day of ordering. Read the reviews on the Tire Rack site and you just might decide that there are tires that are just as good for a lot less money.

I brought the Tirerack info to my indy and asked if he could meet the price (winter tires and wheels). I believe he ordered them through Tirerack and he installed them for me. Tirerack is in South Bend, so you do get them quickly.

P-Zeros are for the rich... might as well change to another brand?
