I just put another set of Yokohama Parada Spec-X tires on my summer wheels. These are 305/50-20 sized on my aftermarket wheels. I priced them on Tire Rack and then went to local shop, Hogan Tire, and they price matched. I believe for all 4 tires with mount & balance with Road hazard plus MA tax of 6.25% it was $1080. Hogan offers lifetime rotate and balance as well. That included $60 or so for a 4 wheel alignment too! Decent total price IMO.
For those unfamiliar with the Yokohama Parada, it is a great tire which offers pretty decent life. I think my last set lasted 4 years (~ 6mo per yr) or 40k miles, but I am not positive. I do know that my truck rides likes new again with the new tires. Well worth the cost!
I do need to get a new set of winter tires to replace my factory Conti 18s (unless I can find a wheel/tire combo in 20" that will survive the winter salt). Ironically, I never had a complaint with the factory Contis. After 8 winters (but only ~40k winter miles), I still have inspection passable tread, but it is time for something new. Toyo? Nitto? Dunlop? Not sure which. I am enjoying the many comments and feedback, so keep them coming!
