Wow. Nice....

Why'd you even ask us about which tire to get. If a tire is good enough for your Vette... It should be plenty good for your Monte Carlo.

I asked because Costco had two tires to choose from.

I picked her up in December. Lucky because I think the factory was closed for a while there.

I will go get a picture of it with the carbon fiber lip and side skirts installed. Looks much better now.

When buying tires look at the tread wear rating Make sure it is 400 or higher or you will be buying tires sooner than you want. Just because the salesman says Oh these will last 60000 miles is a bunch of s**t. Also look at traction and temp.. A OR B ratings are best.

I don't think its a fair statement to brand all Costco's or all Walmart's or all (insert chain here) the same. I'm sure there are numerous Costco's, Walmart's, etc. that have highly trained, well informed, competent people, just as there are likely numerous that are staffed by complete morons. If you've found a facility that treats you well, then stick with them, whoever they may be.
