Hi,
I'll most likely be in too. Just making up my mind. I just can't figure out why the S-03 are so darn expensive!!?? They're the same price as the AVS sport on tirerack... Oh well.

I am interested, but I was wondering where this group buy in Canada is located? I mean... will I be able to pick the tires up? If not, how much the shipping is going to be?

NIL8GM,
what size are you getting? I'm thinking 225/45/17. Just not certain yet if they're worth 250$ more than the T1-S, any prior experience with the S-03?

Thanks,

Matt

Hey Guys,
I may have found a local source! Pneus Lavoie in Gatineau. Their price would include mounting and balancing, plus it's local to us... Might be worth the wait. I had been looking for a while too.

I'm sure WRxednEffect doesn't mind me putting it here since he's not getting anything for organizing it, I'm not either. I just thought a local source would be easier than driving up to Montreal and then installing and balancing the tires somewhere else + $$$$.

Anyway, if you'd like, hold off for a couple days and let me get a price list from them

Thanks,

Matt

I'am going to go with the 225/45 17's in the S-03's. I have no previous experience with them.....but have heard nothing but good. Curious to see what price you can come up with for these bad boys.

Ok,
excellent news! We have a good deal which is local to us. I have a list of prices and possible models. I'll talk to WRxednEffect and sort things out with him before I post anything. I'll be at the NSCS meet tonight and I'll talk about it.

I'll post the deal tomorrow at the latest...

Stay tuned

Matt

Ok,
so we got the same price as Talon (see above^^) , the condition is that we have them installed there, so add 80-100$. They're very good at installs and can align your car if required, this is not your Joe's tires garage... That's where we're getting them, in Hull: http://www.pneuslavoie.com

So , I'll start a running list of people and I'll let it run for a 1 1/2 week, so closed by March 27.

Allright, WRxednEffect will send me the names of the guys he has so far. But, I'd appreciate if you could send me your name also, so to make sure nobody misses out. My contact told me they've never sold tires that cheap before, so spoil yourself!

I'll send an email back with payment/direction when we get to March 27. One last thing, I haven't asked for shipping for the guys outside Quebec/Ontario, I don't mind asking if you're still interested.

Finally, we need at least 10 persons, not necessarily same brand, but that would make things much easier... Can you say S-03!


The list so far:

Bridgestone S-03
-mturmel (225/45/17)
-WRxednEffect (??)
-NIL8GM (225/45/17)
-Seb (225/45/17)
-RallyOttawa (215/45/17??)

Toyo T1-S
-STI RDY (215/45/17)

Firestone SZ-50
-Evan (205/55/16)

Yoko A-520
-Eric (205/55/15)

Undecided (wouldn't S-03be nice... )
-p_seg
-STI RDY
-warpdrive
-grandmasterchan + friend (needs shipping right?)

If everybody's in, we already have 10 guys. Keep them coming. For more info and to give me your coordinate, email me at mturmel2@hotmail.com.

Thanks,

Matt

EDIT: UPDATED, keep'em coming...

RallyOttawa, I would suggest no bigger than 215. I know 225 is fine with the WRX but we have bigger clearance.

Check around the board, I have you down for a set.

Question What's going on?

What's happening?
Do we have two group buys now?

Are we going to pay only GST with Pneu Lavoie
(same deal as Talon)?
