I went to discount tire to ask about the one cupped tire I have and what I can do about it. They say I need to buy 3 new tires and can keep one of mine that has 10/32. The others have 5, 6, 7/32 or so. For three tires of the brand I have it is $128 each plus other mounting, dismounting, balancing, etc fees coming to about $450.
Then I thought, I have those 245/45/17 tires in my garage with good equal tread and they are rated as all seasons.. What if I just bought some new 17" wheels from tirerack, ebay, or something like that? So I've been shopping around and am pretty focused on going with something all black (although all silver on the blue car might be ok too). The wheel needs to be at least 8" wide to support the 245 wide tires.
I went to go look at a used set of audi pie plates down in new hope today... two were bent, tires were terrible. Kinda tired of looking for stuff on craigslist, driving down to msp and finding out they are cracked, bent, scuffed up, etc. Thinking im just gonna go new.
I'm looking to stay as close to $400 as I can for four wheels. If you want to help me out, give me some opinions on what you think would look good, etc. GREAT!! If not, no worries!
So far I like:
Motegi MR118 - Tirerack $524 a little steep...
ASA AR3 are okaaay... - Tirerack $396
