Default NT01 Sourcing

Exhausted my stash and need to stock up.
Usually run 245/40 and 305/35. Used to be on 315 but too much sidewall flex.

Wondering where the best deal is these days for folks who run NT01s on 9x18 and 12x18 wheels knowing it's one of the favorites among the 997 GT3/3RS crowd.

Any info is appreciated.

Discount tire direct has $100 off $450 on eBay right now.

If there's no coupon or rebate I buy mine from bbwheelsonline it's cheaper than discount tire and free shipping.

thanks for the reminder, I'm down to 2 new sets and track season is ramping up!

I run 245/305 NT01. Great track day tires. Cheap and last and good grip. ~2 secs off a hoho around here.

Yup. 245/305
Buy the front pair and rear pair as separate transactions. $100 off each transaction. Six separate transactions. Basically a free pair of rears!

I get 275/335 NT01s at the local Discount tire store for $1084 out the door. Probably bought 20+ set of them over the last 4 years and they honor the same price.. 245/305s are cheaper at a shade over $900

That's a good deal. Discount dire direct is not tax vs buy local at nearly 10%. Ugh. So better for me to buy online. My local Americas tire can get close but I mount balance at BBI anyway so just drop ship there.

Discount has treated me well. Great price and they mount and balance for free. I always use the same guy and just tip him $20.
