Just a heads up, BFG is doing a $150 rebate for sets of 4 tires purchased today and tomorrow.  I just ordered a set of BFG Comp-2's from Simpletire for my Mazda3.  This has been my go-to summer tire for a long time... i was thinking of switching to the Conti ECS this go around, but BFG reeled me in again with the sale!

Yeah. "Brad" from tire rack just posted about it on book of faces and I ordered a set of 215 comp2 AS for hazmat. 

$150 off a $500 set of tires is way to good to pass on! 

Brad is ext 4398!

I've been putting off buying some much needed tires for a couple of weeks now, hoping for somebody (mostly Firestone for the Indy 500's) to put out a rebate. It looks like I'm going to be getting some Sport Comp-2's now instead...Once again, procrastination pays off.

I was planning on getting Conti DWS for my 128i in the spring, but I think this may push me into the Comp-2 A/S instead. The rebate brings them down to ~$100/ea to my door.

Today, I just bought a set of 255/45ZR17 Comp 2 for my 1995 Cobra....  I saw an ad last week.  $150 rebate!

Sweet deal. I needed to buy a new set too.

Does this work for rivals?

For those of us who are Costco members, Costco has a rebate on Michelins and BF Goodrich tires until the end of the month IIRC. That's how I ended up with a set of Sport Comp 2 summers for the 911 for under 500 bucks.

Unfortunately Costco doesn't seem to be able to sell you Rivals though frown

Just ordered a set for my 128i, and my GF got a set for her Mazda 3. Going to pick them up at the CT warehouse for additional savings.

My bmw is a staggered setup.  Rears are close to the bars but fronts are meaty.  #bmwproblems

Mine too. Probably 5/32 left on the old fronts, rears down to the bars and beyond. Such is life.

That's one of the reasons I'm running 4 'rear' wheels on mine. #hiptobesquare

I would be doing the same, but finding two rear Style 207s (17x7.5) is not all that easy.

It did. Rival S 1.5, 225/45-15, times 4, $508.16 after the rebate.

I'm glad I have an ES Miata. 

Timing wasn't great financially, but I just flipped my RE-71s last week, and I was already going to be buying a set of rivals before the hot weather set in.

Yeah, thankfully the Style 262's I needed are a bit more common.
