But looking at his info, the guy is from Australia, and I think over there (and some other countries as well), they actually do spell it as "tyres," unlike here.
Thank you so much. I really mean that!

Why should we be concerned with how they spell "tires" in Australia? I mean, it's not like they have cars down there or anything. Don't they all ride around in kangaroos?

LOL... I kid, I kid!! Just a bit of ribbin' from one wayward British colonial to another. :happy0180:

Why bother explaining yourself to someone that doesn't think there is life outside the U.S

Don't they teach this stuff in school ?

LMAO... okay, that is the quote of the month for me! Of things I never expected to hear, but am strangely compelled to put in my signature line, that takes the cake! Kudos, good sir... kudos!

If you are going with the same size tyre but in a ultra High performance tire, you will spend less than $200 a tire at tirerack. The Prius tyres are one of the most expensive tires in that size.

The FR-S does not have $300 a tire because they are so small at 215/45/17.

Toyota\Subaru could have saved even more money and gone with a better performing tyres at a cheaper price.

Oh yeah and I am using tyres and tires....LMAO!
