What are the lowest priced sources for Yokohama LTS AD07s?
Haven't seen the LTS on Tire Rack, or anywhere else.
Thanks

$1200.00 for tires seems a bit on the high side, but then again, it's a Lotus and everything is farging expensive.

Check out a touring tire for a Honda Odyssey... 800.00 for a set. Sorta puts Lotus tires into perspective.

Why do you want them?

I ask, because for various purposes, there are various better tires.

Just to keep her "stock". I agree they are expensive. I did find them on Tire Rack.
Thanks for everyone's help.

What could you use for regular driving but keep the awesome grip?

My understanding was that the AO48 has a lot less tread life though... about 50% of the tread life of the AD07s.

Honestly the AD07 has been the worse tire I ever had for the Elise. For that money you can have the RE-11 and for $800 you can have super quiet, amazing riding, crazy gripping R888's

Tires have advanced a lot since the AD07's were designed back in the 90's

Not trying to start an argument, but are you sure you want to keep recommending these tires? I know you like them, but:

They finished 3rd of 4 in Tire Rack tests, behind the RE11 and AD08.

Have been superseded as far as i can see by the ZII.

RE11 is way better in wet, which is when lots of trouble happens.

Not saying it's a bad tire, but better choices are out there.

PS: RE11s may have been superseded as well; don't know.
