Toyo t1R

Hi guys, I'm in the market for new tires which are the Toyo T1R but the cheapest I found so far is 204.00 plus $16.00 for shipping. The size I'm looking is 245-40-19

Can someone point me to a different direction or should I stop looking and pull the trigger. My second choice are the Yokohama S-drive which are the one I've using on my 3 series.

Thanks guys

I had the T1R's and really liked them aswell, definitely a great performing tire for the price. Very quiet too!

Good reviews on it. That tire size is incorrect though. 245/35/19 is what you'll want.

Oh I assumed it was for the BMW since its this forum. But that size is actually spot on to OEM sizing, as you probably already know.

Interested! I called tirerack yesterday and after they ask me about the size of the wheel they suggested going for 245/40/19. The size is 19x8.5 with +40 offset
