    Just checked Tire Rack and some 710's are on special. I know the 215/50ZR13's used to be $146.


    215/50ZR13 - $112

    195/55ZR14 - $126

    225/50ZR14 - $135

    205/50ZR15 - $122

    225/50ZR15 - $139

    I think some of the Kumho's that Tire Rack has been selling as of late for lower price are old production date tires. A friend just purchased a set of 710 from TR and with in 15 autocross runs the both fronts totally delaminated. They where 2005 production date but purchased new a month ago from TR. We looked at another seat that a guy purchased at the same time and they also had a 2005 production date. He has not had any problems yet.

    He was going to contact Tire Rack but I have not been able to find out the latest.

    when these run out by the end of the week, i have two brand new, never mounted sets on sale for $100 off ($640). basically splitting the cost of the firesale tirerack is having, and normal pricing.

    whoever i race, it will always end with them into a wall. grandma at the grocery store, little sister at the go-kart track, or my uncle at the state fair when we race remote control boats. the story always ends the same....with them....into a wall.

    just look at my car! or ask zwolle!

    i bet i watch that commercial on youtube 3x/day. the boats get me every time!

    FYI, I checked the TR site and called them about the 13's, they quoted me $151 a tire and the site shows the same price. Jay05, who gave you get the 13's pricing?

    …I feel ill at how far we have drifted from engineering and automotive integrity. It's not just nostalgia. It's more like sorrow. For a shining moment in human history all our science and engineering blossomed to create the great inventions and designs. Now we engage in techno-masturbation like Twitter and TPMS…

    I think that was the clearance price for the older stock. I bought a set of 225/50/15s at the $139 price just before Labor Day, now they're $180 each. Interestingly enough, my tires have a production date of Nov '06 (4606), but maybe I just got the newest old tires

    At the time of the post they were $112 a piece. A couple weeks later they were back up to $151. The V700 14's are now $59. Just picked some up for rains.

    FYI, Tire Rack still has some deals on V710s, Victoracers, and Ecsta V700s, but all the closeouts are in 13", 14", and 16" sizes. They are also clearing out the Avons, but only have 205/55/14, 205/50/15, and 225/50/16 left.
