Cheap new tires?

Walmart. Free balancing and rotations included. I just have some Goodyear Viva 3's. It was $300 total for a set of 4 with the lifetime balancing and rotations.

Obviously not the best tire but it has been 15,000 miles so far and I don't have any complaints or problems. The warranty is for 60,000 miles I believe.

My last couple sets have both been Yoko Avid Ascend, good for 80-85k depending on size. Also rated highly for winter driving. Price isn't too bad and I got them at Tire Discounters so free rotations, which is a lot of free money on rotations considering how long they last.

Kumho tires.

Don't go to a big place.

Find the small tire shops.
I wuz scrolling through this thread hoping someone would suggest Kumho tyres. I gotta say YES, they’ve been great on my Merc people-movers, and when I ran a V8 Holden (Chevy) Caprice.

Of late, I’ve stuck with Pirelli Scorpion tyres for the Tesla, not cheap, I don’t baby the car but still get 40,000kms + on great performance tyres.

I got a set of Goodyear Comfortred's for $120 each at Goodyear. I used the Goodyear credit card and got $160 rebate and 6 months no interest. Free tire rotations too. 80k tread life.

Pay attention to the terms of the tread warranty. They require regular rotations etc.

I got BF Goodrich with 70k mile tread life and very happy. Five months in and many miles and they still look brand new. Just don't buy any Japanese tires that are cheap. I had 20 inch wheels on my Taurus and payed only 500 four tires.....the problem was, every six months they were almost wore down to state minimum inspection.

Tires have good grip and ride is quiet, smooth. Trust me, stick to name brand good rubber and not anything Chinese if your going for the real cheap.
