Just to add my 2 cents into this discussion, I have purchased tires and
had tires rotated at my local Costco store in Norwalk, Ct. I watched them
through the whole procedure, and they do excellent work. First time I have
seen a shop use a torque wrench to properly adjust the lugs.
I was disappointed that they wouldn't put "H" rated tires on my wife's
1992 Acura Legend (only 54000 miles), because the car originally came with
"V" rated tires. I thought that "H" would be more than enough for a car
that rarely goes over 60mph and hardly is a performance car.

> Good choice! Just make sure the Costco people do a good job mounting the
tires and not scratch up the rims!
