In today's newspaper, Firestone has Indy 500 Firehawk tires on sale this month. Buy 3 get 1 FREE. I have P255/60R15
102S RWLon my Vette. They handle very well in dry as well as in the rain. They also look GREAT. I feel these tires are a better alternative than the BFG TA's. Here is the online link. http://www.firestonecompleteautocare.com/popup.jsp?image=4050

I used to sell tires many years ago. The "Buy 3, Get One Free" is nothing more than a standard 25% off sale...but designed to sell full sets of tires rather than pairs or singles. You get a good price, no question, but it's designed to move more tires and increase sales.
Nothing wrong with it...capitalism is what fuels our economy...not gov't spending (my little political rant for the day).

Hmmmmn...... My Cokers will dry rot off of my vette before I ever get enough miles on them to buy new ones again... I guess that is just part of livin in the Midwest (or East dependin on who ya talk with...) and ownin a fair weather only Vette.....
Ordered a set of BFG's from discount tire and specified the manafacture date on the tires that I would accept. They put that date on the order and sent ones made after the date I requested plus gave a $90 rebate for the set. Tires arrived in two days. How can you beat that?

I just put the Indy 500 Firehawk tires on my PC, got a good deal and tires date stamp was less the 6 months old. Boy do they look good! Thanks for the tip on the tires and the link for checking the dates!
