    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..

    I don't know why it's $100 as same tire with the same product # at 2 other sites are $200 tire. Anyway, went ahead and placed an order for a set with delivery by 29th...I am really stoked, that's a deal.

    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
