Did you order the package from the dealer? I just finished getting a set from Tire Rack and saved myself over $2000 from what I would have paid at the dealer. Granted I was able to get $300 18-inch OZ "David" rims on clearance for $99 each (steel rims are at least $60 each) and chose Michelin Alpin RFTs at $300 each. They installed and balanced them for free. As I live in Ottawa, ON in Canada I paid the duty, customs brokerage fee, Ontario taxes, a small tire fee and UPS freight from South Bend, Indiana. Cost me less than $2500 which is the same on Canadian funds. From the day and time I placed my order until I came home to find them my garage door was six days to the hour. The recommended set from the dealer (with Pirelli RFTs) lists at $3800 plus 13% Harmonized Sales Tax. At best there is a 10% sale on last year's sets but none of which fits the GT of course.

I am not shilling for Tire Rack but was impressed at how easyit was to order and have shipped over the border. The big savings didn't hurt at all either.
