So there I am, driving down the road when I hit one of those big soup bowl looking reflectors, cutting one of my tires. I had to get new tires anyway, so I go to the store (Kauffman tire) and get a set of 225/45/17 Toyo Proxes 4's and love 'em. They are so much better than the crappy stockers. They were a little pricey though, $148 per, $686.60 out the door, but they are worth it. I will be waiting to see how long they will last given that they have the same tread wear # (300). My old ones were gone at 25000 miles.
