    Most places should be able to order some in for you, but they won't keep them in stock because nowhere sells 275 width 19" tyres overly often.

    I think they were around 400 a pop

    but hey, its better that going for the bridgestones haha


    it wouldv been cheaper to just get the 20"s more common than a 275 19!

    Khumo do a 273/35/19, could be an option. Dad had them on his Corvette but after a few car shows they didn't last long :driving:

    I don't recall seeing 'my dad can't afford tyres'. Maybe he doesn't want the Bridgestones cos they are not worth that sort of money..?

    the fronts are 40s but theyre only 245s


    and afford them isnt the problem, whos honestly going to put nearly 2g of tyres on just the BACK of a car

    the bridgeys are good tyres, but arnt that good wear wise... rooted after 30thousand ks its ridiculous


    ill give wheel worx a call tomorrow if i get time i did think of them

    cheers:thumbsup:
