Sure, as long as you dont run them in the season more than you need to I dont see how you can go thru a set so quick

All seasons for all seasons, but based on the past few years, I'd say get the snows on before halloween or else you'll be stuck.

Last year I put them on Christmas Eve (just in time, it snowed while I played midnight mass), and the winter before, I put them on in January. So F your Halloween!

Just put on my WS70's. They're for sale in case anyone is looking for a fantastic snow tire. 10/32nds in tread measurement, PM me for details.

Everyone is all about snow tires and I'm just now getting my pilot super sports mounted tonight. Nothing like having brand new summer tires the last day in October!

My winters are on the car. Is it bad that the tire noise is SIGNIFICANTLY reduced with winter tires?

I also mashed one of my 18" BBS on a curb in my own GD driveway the night before I planned on swapping. I guess I'll be making a trip to RimPro next week. Hopefully they can recreate the stock shadow silver cover of the original.

Probably. My Wintersport 3Ds are noticeably louder than my Ecsta SPTs

Interesting. The stock Dunlop Sport SP600 tires from the 08+ STi are stupid noisy.

+1 Haven't been there since I was a teenager, never again. Awful service and sleazy used car salesman tactics.

My best experiences lately have been Tire Rack delivering to my local NBT, they charge less than $60 to mount and balance. I drop off the wheels in the morning, pick up at the end of the day, they never touch my car.
