In case anyone is wondering about custom 18's, I just got home tonight from getting my custom Granite Alloy 18's with new Goodyear Fortera's. I put 66K miles on the original Fortera's so I just went with them again. They are the chrome GX1 model. I prefer the ride of a taller tire.

Wow, pretty snaz! Those will look really sharp. Did you buy them at a retail store, or on-line? Approx. cost?

Thx,

I "got" them at Discount Tire. They replaced my originals, free of charge, AFTER scratching my original painted stock wheels. :angryfire: They can be purchased through TireRack on line for $210.00 each in chrome. They also offer silver machined look. However, I bought the tires. They discounted them too. Down to $500 total even with 66K miles. It has been quite an ordeal but the Discount Tire store manager really did a great job of rectifying the situation. Make sure that whatever wheel you put on that it has a 40+ mm or so offset. By the way, they look GREAT!!!

Actually nearly 67K. I drive over 3K per month.

For sure 66 is the winner of high mileage tire wear award!!! I will be looking for any truck version replacement tire with harder compound instead of one that is intended for 3,000 lb vehicle. Maybe by July I can find a high mileage truck version tire. :cheers:

Your Acadia looks fantastic for 67K miles on it. Great job on the upkeep.
Take care of the car and the car will take care of you. I only hand wash. Park in left field (when possible). I also have floor mats on top of my floor mats.
