Well, I said price was not a factor but value is. IMO. 6 to 8k miles for the price? NO thanks. Even though Lotus supposedly is now offering the AD07 in lss sizes on the 08s. I don't think thats quite yet possible for us.jmiesse - I love the Toyos (not much help, eh) but I'd be curious to hear your reasons for ruling out the Yokohama tires (AD07 and A048) ...
