Oddly enough, one of my favorites growing up was an 87 Porsche 959.

You can't go wrong with speed dimples.

My old boss bought one of those. Couldn't drive it on the street because the government hadn't crash tested any.

although RWB Porsches are cool AF, I can't imagine myself wanting one. Best left in the movies and on posters/screen savers IMO.

The stuff Rocket Bunny makes though…

JDM cars lend themselves better to this kind of styling methinks…

Now these are Porsches I can get into. And that yellow McLaren in the background isnt so bad either.

Blue Rocket Bunny one sort of looks like either a kitted S2000 or even a MX-5.

Green Porsche is the sex though. I'd cook a pizza in the spare rim for a real deep dish pan.

I'm sure this has been covered, but whats the deal with buying tires online in the USA? What companies are good, bad, is it better to ship them to a parcel pick-up service just across the line and declare them on your way back? Get them installed in the States?

But the exchange rate really hurts.

Its as Switch said other than discounttire.com (might hafta google it), currently with the exchange do some quick math and cost vs time of ordering from the US as opposed to seeing what you want in person. Speaking of which, what sort of tires you looking at?

Generally, always ship to a US side service to avoid potential brokerage and freight (no freight in US other than tires mind you). You have the choice of Point to Point Parcel and TSB in Pt Roberts and sumasshipping.com in Sumas.

As for buying and installing them in the states, ask yourself: if you have the time as most shops are first come first serve and how worn are the old tires / do you need the old tires / can you sell them?
