Has anyone seen a good price on Dunlop 3000 195/55/16? I know we probably won't be able to find them for $88 any more but some of these people are around $215.

Thanks Rocket, I just found out they discontinued this tire. I like to stay up on things. I have a GWRRA Chapter that I have just about mounted all their car tires and have them using the 3000's and now they are starting to need new tires so I will give them this link and they can buy him out, then start using Michelin Primacy.

It is amazing the price differences you find out there in cyber space. Hate to see them discontinue this tire. I have one on now with about 12,000 miles on it so far and another waiting to be mounted later this summer. I like the feel of the tire more than the Kumho I had on first.

I must admit I have become attached to the 3000. I have run a lot of them getting from 10,000 to 14,000 miles out of them. I have become a creature of habit when it comes to tires and I really like this one and it sticks very good. A good friend has recommended the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 RF which he says it a good "wet" tire. When I am out of 3000's I guess I will try this. Looks like I will have to move a little out of my comfort zone!

Hey Towmotor, have you looked at the Dunlop winter sport 3D?

Yes Rocket I got that tire but I put the 33 PSI I was used to in other Dunlop's, It handled a little loose with just me but we went to Tenn and Kat was complaining about it feeling like it was rolling over in the turns. The next day I added 2 Lbs and headed to Georgia and that cured, rode like the one I have on it but Kat said she would not ride on it so I have a 3D Wintersport with 1500 miles on it still mounted on my on of my extra rims that I have not taken off yet.

I still have 1 or 2 new ones ready in the basement. If you want to try this 3 D for a little while to see if you like it let me know it's mounted, you can run down here one day and we will throw it on.

Do not some businesses jack up the shipping price and sell item for less so they don't have to pay ebay as much?
