Hi all,
  I've started checking into tire costs for my current ride - a 2006 A4 Quattro with TPMS, and holy cow, was I shocked to find out how much these suckers are going to cost! The tire I've decided on is the Nokian WR - I've had a set and LOVED them - the tread design isn't quite as radical as their famous Hakkepillita tire, and is more of an all-season radial, but the overall performance is perfect for what I want - something better than the usual all-season tire, but not a full-blown winter tire. At any rate, the tire estimate I got was over $200 a tire, choke, choke. 
  Is this what good tires are going for these days or should I be shopping around? That seemed pretty exhorbitant, but then again, the car has 17" wheels, and I've not had 17" wheels before - perhaps I'm just experiencing sticker shock for the cost of tires that size...
