So, I was getting new wheels installed at a highly-rated TireRack installer.... ($15 per wheel)…IMG_20190525_131057415_HDR

So the guy at the shop was telling me: "Your tires are 2 years old, you need to buy new tires".... then he tells me "Nokians ride stiff, you need a softer riding tire"... then he tells me, "You should consider getting Hankooks"
if you're going to harass me about age of tires.... and if I buy tires from you, they better be brand spanking new from a 2019 date code... if they put on a 2017 or older date code tire, I will be demanding new tires.
the Nokian Z-line A/S are pretty comfortable, and I like cornering grip also..... and no Hankook tire interests me at the moment. I rather use Nexen instead if I wanted a Korean brand tire
and oh, they chipped the paint on my new wheels at the lug hole (it happens, not too [censored] about it).
