I have the 255/45R19 (front) and 275/40R20 (rear) sizes. They were delivered within a week. I was able to inspect them before installation and they look great. Had them installed at Tires Plus which is my routine service shop. The installer said that he had to use a bit more weight than usual to balance one of the tires. I had the front end aligned at the same time using Dicktator's specs. The tires ride wonderfully and I am very happy with the purchase. I paid $109 for each front and $123 for each rear.

Fella's a lot of people talking about dressing the tires. I have always used Aerospace Protection 303 on the R with no issues about slinging stuff on the car. It requires frequent application but none the less it keeps them looking really nice without the mess. I found out about 303 on the Hot Rod Power Tour years back when they gave free samples.

I have used Chadwick's for a couple of year's, it lasts a loooong time, doesn't drip or sling off, and even smells great! Makes the tires looks awesome. It's a bit expensive but the bottle lasted longer than a year and I did all the cars in my family numerous times. Only need to apply sparingly. Oh yeah, I also use it under the hood for all the plastic and rubber components and hoses. Makes everything shiny, clean and dries non-oily.
