    Ya I don't go cheap on tires. Paying for the expensive tires pays for itself

    Those bridgestones are a great tire. I’m a fan for sure. Enough so I replaced tires I got new on the truck with another of the same set.

    B76DE1AA-EB55-47E5-9F41-4D64D0B5A3F5.jpeg I see TA has a special on Firestone Drives. Bridgestone quality at Firestone price. F690s look good to me. $365 plus FET, local sales tax, mount and valve stems. Probably $3400, I’m guessing total.

    I'm a Michelin dealer, so I always say Michelin.

    I'd stay top tier

    Michelin/Continental/Bridgestone

    That ad from TA with the M713 is a crazy good price.

    Fuel savings over a year will more than pay for premium tires.
