finally got new tires

I finally replaced my tires on my 04 , at 176000 kms. couldn't believe how rare the original size is p230/70r17 . got a hell of a deal on p245/70r17's general grabbers,brand new take offs for 130.00each installed,& balanced ,and they kept the old ones . I guess I got my moneys worth out of the original set eh LOL

I ended up upgrading to 265/75/17 at the advice of my local tire shop, the others were impossible to find.
