new tires for 2001 Boxster

I just came from the dealer, since my warranty on my 01 Boxster is about to expire. They told me I need four new tires, at a cost of $1000 to $1200. any recommendations out there on where else I can go to get new tires, since I know the dealer is going to charge top dollar? Would a place like NTW be ok?

I live in the Wash, DC area. TIA.

www.tirerack.com, dude! I bought a set of Kumho's for my 97 and got them for 540.00 delivered.

Be sure not to buy the cheapest Kumho's though because they require rotation to keep them quiet and we Boxster owners can't do that.

But, this is a can of worms. Everyone has preferences on tires and feels strongly about it! I just chose these because I knew I had lots of repairs to do and just needed basic rubber. But, everyone who sees them and knows tires says "those are good tires! Great choice!"
