Mmm... New tires at last. Didn't go for superultramega performance tires this time, as my last pair lasted 10-15k miles, and I'm not exactly trying to qualify for the SCCA. They're not as grippy as the el-cheapo ones I just threw out, but that's why they're going to outlast the car (I hope). They're quiet and smooth, and as stable as I need them to be. They'll probably grip harder once the tread compound wears in, so I'm definitely happy with them. Got 10% off with my AAA card, too, but $415 isn't easily covered by digging in the sofa. Got my last oil change before 100k miles, too, and a decent car wash. I'll have to wipe down the mirrors later, but at least I won't be out there for two hours with a hose.
