Default Dragon Tires

Anybody else buying new tires for the Dragon?
my fronts are toast, rears about 50%.
certainly not Dragon worthy.
I considered the new Hankook RS-4, but with our crap dollar ordering from TireRack is not attractive right now.
So... I think I will go with the Re-71R again.
Even buying through Canadian Tire is cheaper than TireRack.
Checking pricing through local dealer too.
Wish we still had the Shazzy deal from last year!
Anybody find a deal anywhere?

Did you try calling tires23 and get a price? They usually have good pricing. I'll be looking for some new tires after the dragon I'm sure. The RS3 are holding up better than expected.

That's pretty cheap. RE71's from Tires23 for 245 square were about $840 if I recall. Then there was a Mail in rebate of $60-$70 at the time.

Cash and carry means no install so tires23 price is similar. I also don't think there is much of a price difference between 245 and 255.

yeah I think last year Tires23 was $840 mounted, balanced, taxes in for my 225F-255R Re-71Rs.
So far this year I haven't found better than $840 plus, plus so still looking.

Definitely, I want to try RE71's after RS3 gets bald
Never had them before and many people say good things about RE71's.
Also have question about Tire23.
Do they use non-touch tire mount machine(I don't know how to call) or are they good on them?
Because I need to re-mount my tires on new wheels and don't want any mount scratches
The shop that I used to go for mount tires and change made mount scratches on my stock wheels last year so.
Let me know
Thanks
