Need tires - anyone have Joe T's phone?

Since Mr Tire was a sponsor at the MAR Childrens Guild fundraiser in Balto this year, I thought I'd give them some business.

Anyone have Joe T's phone and email address? Plus, we need to get him on FerrariLife anyway.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks - I checked on-line.

The Annapolis BMW dealer was trying to charge me almost $500/tire ($496.50/tire for run flats).

Mr. Tire quoted $390/tire online, everything included, out the door.

Answer this - what is the 'value add' of a dealer jacking up the price 21.49% over a competitor?

Answer: overhead.

They need to pay for their team of six full-time service writers.

Let them find anotha' sucka.

WTF - no wonder the buying public is wary of dealer pricing after the sale.

Thanks - I think I will stick with Bridgestone run-flats.

I've read of too many people being killed on the side of the road changing a tire.

I think the run flats are worth the extra money.

I still swear by Radial Tire in Silver Spring. Plus you can walk over and bother Wetpet while they are working on your car!

Weather looks promising. Thanks for the assist.

ED - are you buying the tires one at a time?

yes, for my service vehicles. when they pop one, i replace it. i like to get all the miles out of them. I tell my guys to watch the tread and let me know when they can see the air.

Frugal doesn't even begin to describe you.

Maybe they can use them as slicks at the track?

not with he belts sticking out. I consider slicks to still have miles on them. I just rotate them to the back.
