Yesterday I was doing a Google search for tires in my size and found some Cooper Zeon's 245/50 16 inch.
They were on sale at Canadian Tire for $ 86.42 each,around $ 30.00 off the regular price.
I ordered 4 of them and my wife will pick them up tomorrow as I am still out west working.
It will be interesting to see how they perform.There were lots of reviews on them and they were mostly good.

I'm working on a friends c4 corvette right now that has those tires but in a 275/40/17. They are nice tires for the money. Look good, quiet and hook up pretty good.
