After looking through the Forums, it seems that the Toyo FZ4's are being discontinued. This explains why the rims dealer is trying so hard to sell me a wheels/tire package with Toyo FZ4's.

$1000 for 4 17" RS4 replicas and Toyo FZ4 225/45-17's.

Good deal?

It's only $400 more for the same package with Mich. Pilot Sports.

Which dealer is offering this? I may research the tire specs and go for it (been shopping for RS4 replicas). Just because it is being discontinued, doesn't mean the tire won't meet your (or my) expectations. Compare tread life, traction, etc. with others that you are considering. If the price is right when taking all these factors in, then it's a good value. If the tire doesn't offer what you want, then no price is a good price.

I got the info from the Wheel Exchange®. Take into account that I wouldn't be charged shipping or freight since they are only 45 minutes from where I live, and I would go an pick them up myself. The actual offer was $1079. I knocked off the 79 because I was assuming that included freight - but perhaps not.

A little late to the game, but I bought a wheel/tire combo from the Wheel Exchange and I'm nothing but smiles.

To my understanding the FZ4s have not been discontinued, but they have been replaced by the 4s, my tire place still stocks both. Not sure why anyone would spend the same price on the FZ4s when they could get the 4s. I have the Proxes 4s and they are great. My dad had a set of FZ4s on his last car and they were great also.
