After 11K miles, the front Bridgestone Excedra Max tire is ready to go to tire heaven. Funny, the rear has ~8,000 miles, and still looks brand new.
In any case, I liked the Excedra Max a lot, and can't complain about the mileage, but shelling out $180 for a new one seems high.
There aren't many options for front tires in our size, but there are a few bias ply options at half the price. Anyone have first hand experience with those?
