I am not real happy with dealer service and would prefer not to have to take car to them for tires since I think I can get tires cheaper and with better service other places. I will probably go with RFTs from Michelin but am willing to hear any pros and cons. Thanks...
I wouldn't let anyone in a store like Costco install tires on your car, especially RFT's. These tires are difficult to install due to their stiffness and low profile. they'll get the tire on, but I wouldn't risk them damaging your wheel. If you don't like the dealer, find a reputable independent mechanic who does a lot of work on German car.
