alright, so i changed my brakes today and discovered that my rear tires were shot...
so i need to get some new tires, basically i don't really want to spend the money on the oem ones but want to sacrifice as little as possible with lower priced tires, so i am just wondering if i can get some thoughts on what tires i should consider?

right now i have some toyos

How much are you looking to spend? How hard to you really push your car? Just about everything outhere is a step down from our Advans. I'm just a daily driver so I gave up quite a bit for increased treadwear in the Kumho MX's. The grip is OK but sidewall is soft. I might try Falken RT-615's next time.

If you want as close to Advan performance (including tire wear, poor cold/snow/ice performance, etc) without breaking the bank, then get the RT-615s. They are VERY high performance summer tires that last a little longer than Advans but cost about half as much. I use them as my daily drivers.

Anybody have any recomendations on a place that sells tires at the best price. I usually go to Tire Rack because they're located in the Tri-state area, but they don't sell Falkens.

Discount Tire Direct sells the Azenis for a great price. That's where I get mine, and they usually have free shipping. In fact, I get the price online, then I go across the street to the Discount Tire store and have them do their best to match the price with mounting, balancing, and warranty included. It's a great setup...

Thats it! The Tire Rack was always the primary tire seller that I saw in mags but there was also discount but I completely forgot their name. Thanx

Sounds like the perfect tire for my wifes WRX this summer! And they come in a good size (225/45/16) for her stock rims. I have been thinking about what to get for her car, thanks for the information about them.

Discount tire direct will send them to your front door..... how can you say that you can't get them? I am confused here. :confused:

yeah that is exactly it

i needed to get them today, and couldn't really get them any later
i will probably end up getting them eventually, like this summer and just sell the ones that i got on there to make up for some of it

Ahh, didn't realize the rear tires were that bad to the point of being dangerous, I thought they were just worn out.

How bad are the front tires? Normally you would need to replace all 4 tires, but if the fronts are in fair to good condition, and you can get the EXACT same tires for the rear you can just replace the worn out ones for now, put the new tires on the front, and the old front tires on the rear. I would not normally even consider this, but if you plan to replace the tires with new high performance tires later this spring it could save you some money.

Are you seriously driving on those tires in this slushy/snowy weather?

I don't care about pushing my car to the edge anymore.. the Cooper Zeon Sports that I have on my car do well enough in this snow and in the summer. Yeah, I bailed out and went all-season, but I don't regret it at all.
