I'm looking for Toyo RA-1s to use on the track. Can you recommend a reputable store in L.A. that carries them at a good price? I wish Tire Rack carried them...

TIA.

Raffi,

If you're willing to drive up to Santa Barbara, Ian's Tires will get you out the door for a bit over $700 (4 T-1S Proxes, installation, disposal, balancing) for the stock E46 staggered sizes.

Oops. I just read that you wanted RA-1s. I have no idea in that case, but these guys have brought in tires for me that were competitive or better than Tire Rack's price.

Raffi,

You'll probably deal with Ian himself since he picks up the phone more than half the time. He's a nice guy, and it's a small shop, so there really aren't too many hassles.

I'll be at Buttonwillow in 3 weeks, and am looking forward to it. I assume you'll be there, and I hope the place will be just slightly cooler than h*ll.

Are you going to use the RA-1's at Buttonwillow?

I spent my teen years in Bakersfield (about 20 minutes away) and there are basically 3-4 month where it's not hotter than hell in the San Joaquin valley...Between early December and mid March, where it's COLDER than hell during those months (our pool would freeze over). I think we get a total of like 3-4 days a year where the weather is just about right. :(

Thanks Andre. I will be at Buttonwillow and plan on running the RA-1s if I can get them in time... See you at the track. :thumbup:

Hmmm, thanks for the tip. How much of a discount are they giving through the GB? I will have to compare their prices with local quotes to see if it's worth the cost of shipping vs. saving on tax.

Thanks. :thumbup:
Free shipping, free shaving, still waiting for the price/tire
