Speedstyle sells the Brullen. Go all out - you can still get in on the
Brullen header buy!

Good luck - Stu

Speaking of WRB WRX's I saw one parked at Billings Bridge last week, all done up in WRC colours... Was that you?

Same here,
looking for feedback on Azenis RS in the wet... They don't inspire confidence looking at the tread...

If not, I'll check for S-03... They're probably around 320$ each or more... They go for 170 USD at tirerack in 225/45/17.

Keep us posted,

Matt

I was at Billings Bridge a few times this week, but my WRX isnt done up with any WRC styling or anything. Though I did see a WRB WRX driving down Bank today near Landsdowne Park with some yellow Subaru decals on the rear passenger door area...

I checked around a bit more on the Falken Azenis and Im thinking that they arent really the tire im looking for. Ive heard from a few people that have run them that they are scary in the rain and that their tread wear is pretty poor. (rated UTGQ 200AA ) and price wasnt as low for them as I had hoped...somewhere in the $250 region. I think I will probably go with the Kumho Ecsta 712 myself. Derand on Catherine is selling them for $179. They have a much longer tread life (rated UTGQ 280AA) and they feedback I have heard about the 712s is pretty good.

Im considering checking out some places on the other side of the St. Lawrence to see what kind of prices they are selling for there and seeing if it may be worth my time to take a trip to the US to buy them there.

I checked into the S-03 last summer and the price you quoted is about right. I think they were a bit more last summer, but could have just been I didnt look around enough to get a good price on them.

What size were you quoted?

I called speedstyle and final lap and got quotes for the 712's late september....

For 205-50-16, I was quoted $129 at final lap and $145 at Speedstyle.....

For the Azenis, I know 2 shops who will carry them..... http://www.talontire.com and http://www.wheels-direct.com/

Undeniably the best place to get exhaust stuff in Ottawa is not in Ottawa. It's in lachute. They have just about any exhaust you ever wanted in stock ready to put on. Usually someone is going there and can pick stuff up for you if you really want. Also Ben and Julien are great people to talk to and they both know a lot about the stuff you sell. Needless to say I'm really really happy with the MRT exhaust I bought. Sounds very nice and is quiet.
