Paying is painstaking buy the payoff is all glory. This winter I said forget it to a two-carat diamond tennis bracelet and hello to a new set of all-season sport tires. I shopped around all fall and my mechanic told me where to head. He sent me to Discount Tire, (in Perrysburg, Ohio) where “all they do is tires.” I wanted something ultra-sporty because there isn’t any sense in driving a turbo-charged import with tires that don’t offer premium performance. Yokohama has a new model, the Advan Sport A/S that sells for about one-hundred dollars less (purchase of four) than Michelin. Made for supreme handling the structure showcases a performance shoulder to enhance cornering. The asymmetrical tread design aggrandizes “spirited driving across (insert adective) weather conditions”. After seeing car after car in the ditch on my way down Scenic 105 this morning (after I shoveled the driveway) I was happy to have them. They can be bought on credit with 0% financing for six months.
