Pirelli tire "deal"
I went to that Action Motorsports (formerly Andrews Cycles) last night. They had one set of Pirelli Diablo Corsa's left, and the "deal" isn't really much of a deal. It was 260 for the set, which is much cheaper than any other set of tires from the dealer, however, about the same price I paid from ronayers.com last year. Also, they did not have a 190 rear like I wanted, but they did have a 180 wich I can use. I have heard that the 180 actually handles better, so I got it. The dude came down to 250 out the door, which saved me tax and what not. Not as good as I thought, but still pretty good.
They do have a special on Metzlers. Same price. $260, but I'm sure the dude will "wiggle" if you push a bit. The dude quoted a set of Dunlop 208's and it was close to $350 just for the tires. I almost called a doctor for the guy b/c he is obviously insane, or thinks I am.
Oh well. I'm running the Diablo's now and like them a lot. I've got about 5000 miles and 1 track school on them and I am hesitant to replace the front, and the back still has a bit left as well.
Side note: Is there a difference between the Diablo, and the Diablo Corsa? The tread pattern is the same, so if there is a difference I would expect it to be compound. Thanks!
