I dropped mine in 3 weeks ago. I will also keep them on until close to the first autocross next year. I'm trying to push the summer rubber trough another season.

I have a friend who does that and I was thinking to do that for my wife's front wheel drive car but I worry that they might wear to fast.
Let me know.
Thanks

How much for mounting and balancing?

I still haven't switched out my wheels, trying to milk that last few thousand miles from my current AS tires.

Dunlop Wintersport 3D on a second set of Saabaru stockers is ready to go the night before the first snow.

Made the switch on November 3rd, got fresh alignment on the 4th and left for my friends ranch in Colorado on the 5th. Complain all you want, but the Dunlop 3Ds' shure handle the snow out there well! Drove 3 hrs on hardpack and ice with no problems!
