i have it narrowed: either yoko avs s4 ($72/each)
or toyo proxes z1 (price pending). got a good
btdt on the dunlop sp sport 4000 a/s and nixed
them from the list. don't know why but i decided
against the bfg comp t/a vr4's, too ($79/ea).
(oops, update - i am on the fone now. they say
the toyo's are on "national backorder". i need
tires right away, so i guess i have to go with
the yokohamas. america's tire is matching the
$72 tirerack qouted, though they have this tire
normally priced at $98.)
anyway, for those that asked, the tire place that
i mentioned ysterday is america's tire, in redwood
city. i can get tires put on on friday - providing
they have them - and they have 50k mile warranty,
lifetime free rotation, etc. there's a slight
rub, though: they don't do alignment. there's a
place they send the alignment jobs to, down the
street, but they are not open this friday whcih
is about the only time i can get out of town for
a job like this.
i know the car needs alignment - it pulls to the
left a bit. the main question is if i get the
tires friday, is it ok to drive for a few days
without getting the alignment done, or am i
better off getting the tire/alignment done at the
also, some folks offered great advice for how to
go abou;all this - especially bringing with me the
torque/alignment/etc data (from bentley, etc) and
asking them to go mto my specs and tolerances.
what i need now, is the data itself. anyone have
that? '83 ur-q.
as usual, thanks a jillion, and i'll see you bay
area folks in santa cruz this weekend.
