FS: Bridgestone RE960AS 225/55/16

Just changed tires and have the two old tires still good for 5000-10000 miles. Even wear. Selling for $20 each or $30 for both. Good for spares or fill in for flats.

Pickup only.

Many fixes to this same problem. Good thing it's common or we're in trouble.







You're right Bluebee. In my case, it was the module. No more trifecta since! Thanks for the links!
