Doing a "Mason"

Unfortunately, the Focus SVT uses an unusual sized 17" 
tire, a P215/45 ZR17.  Most cars like this, including the 
wife's turbo Beetle, use a P225/45 ZR17 so the odd size 
tire costs more.  The only tires the store had that would 
fit were Bridgestone Potenza's and not his top of the line 
tire either.

Since I'm wanting to sell the car, I didn't want to put 4 
tires on it although the rears will need replacing before 
too long.
