Re: Tire Brands
Like I said in the original post, if I got with what I can get through
work: it's Dayton, Uniroyal, Generals or FS/BS. Possibly Goodrich. I'm
going to pay about 10% of the cost, so, frankly it's a great deal *unless*
I end up with unsafe/crap tires. I've heard so many unhappy Firestone
stories, that's why I'm leary of them.
Thanks for all responses!
