in this product/ad? Hard to beat amazon's $107 with free shipping... Is the price 'coz of the tread wear of 440 vs the 720 and 800 in the second link in Tire-rack.com? How long do these tread wears last?

Read about this particular tire at Discount tires and found out, Michelin UTQG of 440 AA is good for 55,000 miles with A-A standing for A traction and A temp variability. I think i am ordering a set now..

Load rating load rating load rating. Check the load rating. I bought tires online before, they were the wrong load rating. Lower price usually means lower load rating. A sedan is not going to weigh as much as your truck obviously.

Don't think these tires are for a sport sedan as 60 side wall is too tall for any sedan. The load rating is 111 = 2400 lbs and the same tire in 285/60 > 120 = 3000 lbs and costs $240. I think the load is high not 'coz of the price but coz of the width.

Just checked today at Amazon and prices went up from $100 to $128, a whopping 28% high... I guess I did well saved me a $120 that would help with Install, balance and a 4 wheel alignment.
Tires were delivered today and look great
