Not sure if they have them ready or if it takes a day or so.

I noticed there is another cover on the passenger side front and a square one one the back.
I asked Evan if I order all of them, is the cost to paint the same? and it was. So I order two of the fronts and two of the rears(spares) and have them all painted. Then Evan emails me and tells me the front part number(l&r are interchangable) says it is a kit, so there might be two per kit. I told hom to just get two. So I may have 4 fronts and 2 rears??? i figured it was better then buying one at a time and having to get them painted everytime
Okay, thanks guys! and good looks! Always better to have extras around

I think I can live with the softer feeling cornering. Now lets pray for some snow so I can see how these perform. I have my handful or tow hook covers and my DWS. I am ready for the winter!

Wondering what was worse handling wise over the RFT other than the soft cornering?
was thinking about ordering these for the M as i don't want to be swapping winter/summer tires. can you give us some more detailed feedback after driving them a little more. I need to get rid of the RFT's before winter, had quite a few scary moments last winter with these tires.
