Bridgestone RE730 225/45/17=approx. $641.25

or

Nitto NT555 235/45/17 =approx. $609

If these do not fit your liking drop me some suggestions, but not suggestions that are outrageous in price. I want to stay right around this price range.

:rolleyes: Though I agree with him, given the above choices, I'd go against the nittos - everything I've heard says they absolutely SUCK in the rain.

BTW - 225/45-17 is a closer match to our stock circumference - i.e. <2% odometer error.

Well I live in Arizona so rain is not really an issue except for about a week out of the year.

235/45/17's are the closest size for the 1st Gen TL. Think its the same for CL-S and TL-S

fahoumh- I am open to other decisions. How much are the Toyo Proxes? What are they going to cost me out the door?

I'm not sure on the exact price, but the Toyo's are one of the most expensive tires out there. Not only that, but they provide the best performance at the expense of how long they will last. Funny how that price and performance thing are directly related.

To get a good idea of what prices you should pay, check out www.tirerack.com

They are very competitive in price. Just don't tell them what car you are planning to put the tires on. They are dumb in that aspect. They won't sell you tires that aren't "recommended" to go on your rims. I would just use them as a reference point and then go buy the tires local to you at a similar price.

Really? i thought they were just another company out there making tires. Not too expensive not too cheap. Well I want to stay in the price range of the tires that I have above.

These prices are out the door.

I guess I should have been a little more clear. I was talking specifically about the Toyo Proxes. ;)
