Tires

I know that there have been many many threads about tires, but I can't find any of them. I will need new tires soon and would like some good tires for less than 300 dollars. do such things exist? Also, what sizes fit the stock ss/sc rim. 215/45-18 is stock.

If you are looking for a complete set of tires under $300 that is not going to happen. If you are looking to 300 a piece then that can be easily accomplished. Go to www.tirerack.com To get a good set of tires you can count on $700-$1000+. That is the downside to low profle performance tires

700 is really fucking steep for a college student who has to pay for the car by himself. I'm not one of these 20 year olds where daddy pays for the nice car. I pay this shit, and gas, and my cell phone. Not to mention 300 dollar rent plus utilities. 700 dollars won't be possible. Any chance of 400-500?

I'm in the same boat, it bites.

You might be able to find a deal if you call around and talk to some local shops. I have a friend who works at Firestone and they had 2 nitto 555's that had been sitting for some time in my size. They wanted $50 each just to get rid of them. So then just buy 2 more at full price and have my friend mount them. The sad part was, I was 10 min. to late to get them!

Heck, try ebay, or someone on here that wants to get some other tires than stock. I've seen a thread or two from people wanting to sell tires.

That's just how it is. Tires for the stock wheels are expensive. You'll just have to save up for them.
