It looks like I have some more tread left. I hope to pull another 10K miles from it. Did some comparison on the prices for new tires. Costco's price is $915 for all four tires 2 Front ( Bridgestone® POTENZA RE050 225/40R18) @ $244.74 each and 2 Rear (BFGoodrich® g-Force™ Sport 255/35R18 ) @ $212.74 each. I am thinking of changing the tires now and have these 4 as "Spares" in case I have a flat. What do you guys think?
Also does Costco's policy of fixing the flats hold for RFT? I asked the Costco Tire Shop in Livermore, I was told they would replace flat tires , but did not elaborate. Any experiences with Costco and RFT?

By all means, DON'T MIX tire brands on the front and rear axles!
