New Tires

I'm looking to get new tires....because mine are pretty much bald. Do you think its possible to get a decent set of tires for 300 bucks? I sure hope so, because I'm a broke bastard.

15's and 16's are probably the bigest sizes you afford on a $300 budget. Id say try ebay, but shiping would probably put you over.

Yeah, I've got the 16" silver alloy rims. I'm guessing that I'm probably going to be looking at a shit load of money for good tires. I do a lot of expressway driving, and want something that isn't going to suck at 80+ mph. Ya know?

Tirerack has a few tires in the $50 range for the stock size.

I bought these from Tirerack.com and it cost me $250 with shipping. Having the tire shop mount / balance the tires with new valve stems (plus old tire disposal fee) cost me $65. So, that was right around what you were looking for. I have 225-60-R16's. I haven't driven the car much since I got them because I have been replacing steering components and I don't want to ruin the tires until I have it aligned. I let you know how they perform in a few weeks.

I agree with viprman. Those Yokohama Avid Tourings are amazing for the price. I believe 00Chrys has them tires as well. They are much better than the Eagle GTII's that I had on the car previous to these. And plus, the 80,000 mile treadlife warranty ain't bad either. I've ridden on mine for about 35,000 miles and foresee that they'll last all of that 80,000 miles.

Pep Boys usually selss Falken ZIEX 512s for around $67.00 bucks a pop and mounting and balancing are free. I've heard good things about the tires, bad things about the techs there(sorry if anybody out there is one). Check it out.

Consider this one more vote for TireRack.com. With shipping and mounting/balancing fees, you'll probably just come in under your $300 limit. I just bought the girlfriend some Yokohama Avid Tourings, and she loves them. I agree, they feel solid as a rock, and they've got great traction.

About a year and a half ago, I bought some Dunlop SP Sport A2's for the Trep. They're a little pricier, but they deliver a pretty good ride. Only problem I have with them is they're wearing like crap. We'll see -- I have a feeling I'll be getting from of those Yoko's for the Trep soon too...
