Good move if you're on a budget, but not if you were looking for LRR tires...they are NOT LRR.

Thanks. Not on a budget--in fact, I now know for the same price as I paid, Mavis Tire, which installed them, has the Bridgestone Ecopia EP 422, which is a LRR. Wish there was a way to rerun or sell them, but they now have 200 mies on them.
