Perfect timing - count me in !!! What are the chances that we can get a deal on the OEM Michelin tire if we order in conjunction w/the rim ??? and to think I was considering a base rim for a F/S spare . . . :eek: :confused: :rolleyes:

Click on the link to the group buy counter and it shows 8-8-2002, so it must be August 8. I would also be interested in a package to include the Michelin tire.

Me too!

I take it the purpose of this is to replace the rinky-dink OEM spare? Will a full-size spare fit in the MDX spare compartment? I would also love the package with the Michelin tire.

How will the full size spare effect the tire rotation process? With a full size spare, don't you normally rotate the spare?

If so, Does anyone know if the Michelin's are directional tires or not? Just something to think about when purchasing the tire/wheel combo.

I am not planning on rotating the F/S spare - however when it is time to replace the original tires I plan on keeping the best (least wear/tear) as the spare and replacing the other 3 tires and using the F/S spare as the 4th - saving me 25% on the purchase of the new tires.:2: :cool: :p

Michelin tire is $160 including shipping from tire rack. I checked at a couple of local tire stores, and both said they could order the tire at $206 and $175, respectively. I also checked with BJ's Wholesale club and their price was $152 including stem, balancing, etc. Seems to be the best deal around.

FYI . . .

Tim's regular price is $142 for the Michelin, shipped . . . was hoping I could coax a better price if ordered with the touring rim in this GB :rolleyes: :p ;)

BTW, Costcos here in SoCal do not carry this size of Michelin CrossTerrain although they seem to carry just about any size of the MXV4 M+S tires . . . I believe they will mount and balance a tire on your rim for $9 if you're a member . . .

Then another $10 to have someone mount on rim and balance etc.

BJ's price looks real good, unless Tim can come up with an attractive "mounted tire" deal...say $320 mounted and shipped..

That would certainly be the best deal. The $122 was cheap enough for me since I bought a 'like new' Touring wheel for $150 including shipping.

I recall from another thread (in Accessories) that Tim is not keen on shipping tire mounted on rim. Something to do with the post- delivery wheel balancing ....

Check it out. I believe that thread was started as a HAW monthly special.

Rim + tire . . .

Actually, I am only looking for a break on the Michelin tire in conjunction with the touring rim on this group buy - not mounted & balanced. I figure with the Firestone/Exploder (sic) issue, Tim does not need the legal headache when shipping a rim+tire across the country. Hoping that the savings in packaging & shipping warrants a 'good' price on the CrossTerrain . . . Are you listening Hondacura World ??? :p :cool: :rolleyes:

Yup, all items quoted by Tim include shipping, UPS ground if I'm not mistaken, only difference is folks on the east coast will get their goodies sooner than us out on the left coast . . . at least we will save on sales tax, which in SoCal is a 8.25% discount :2::eek: :2:
