Just thought Id post to tell you guys thanks for all the info on the Firehawk SH30's. I had them put on Saturday and they really drive great. If anyone remembers, I started out 3 weeks with the Potenza RE910, and hated the performance (is a T rated)-Not 4 Me. Then my dealer recommended the Bridgestone Eager's. He put them on and I it drove like I had boulders on the car, I litterlly felt every notch in the road and it seem like the natural engine vibration's energy wasnt being "released" through the tires.(sounds crazy huh!!!), anyway I took them back and the dealer was somewhat kool (he really didnt want to) and installed the Firestone Firehawk SH30's. Great tire-handles great-smooth quiet ride - and not real expensive -- when I do this again, I will definetly go through Tirerack for my purchase. I found out about the site after the fact. Anyway thats my spill on things

Glad you like SH30s, like you said real guiet and smooth but where these tires really excel is in the rain. I just ran between Toronto and Montreal in a heavy rain storm and was amazed, no hydroplaneing at 70 mph. These tires have to be best H rated all season tires available at this time.

The only bad thing about tirerack is that you wouldn't have been able to exchange tires multiple times like you did. Tirerack will NOT take back any tires that have been MOUNTED on the wheel, let alone tires that have been driven on. If you know what you want, Tirerack's great. But if you want to test out different brands or different sizes, they're not very accomodating.
