    Baby got new shoes ... the easy way!

    These guys are great. Not only do they source the tires at the best price possible, they turn up to your house and do the job when it suits you.
    No more hanging around Discount Tire for 2 hours reading months-old magazines waiting patiently for your turn to have your wheels abused.

    I have no affiliation with AZ Mobile tire, just been using them for years.

    For those who care, I eventually went with the OEM Pirelli P Zeros as the Michelin PS2 were backordered for several months without any idea if they would even bother to make any in 599 sizes.

    I had my Goodyear F1's mounted at Discount Tire and when I told the manager that it was for a Ferrari , the store manager mounted them himself !, while I watched. Their mounting machines don't touch the rim, he did a perfect job with my freshly re-finished wheels.
    When I initially talked to him about mounting the F1's, I told him that I didn't want some rookie kid mounting them on my re-finished $1000 wheels. He understood my concern.
    I guess it depends which Discount Tire that you go to.
    I like the idea of a mobile guy , if he's that good and has the best mounting machine.

    What a great idea for a service!

    Do they make Bridgestone in that size? Ever tried them? Pirelli are known for wearing out fast, though they gotta lot of grip. Just curious.

    These guys are really good. I've had them do my cars for several years now. They take great care and they are quite happy to have you hovering over their shoulder while they work, which would drive me nuts personally :)

    I would be more concerned how they picked the car up with the floor jacks.

    Why would that concern you? Just curious.
    There are clearly visible jacking points on the 599 and the jacks fit right under them. I'd say a 12 year old could do it without any issues at all.
