Tire buying

I need new tires. Whatever the stock 16" tires are. American muscle says 245/50 r16. I need to know where I should look for the best prices, what brands suck, and which are good

www.tirerack.com is a great starting point to find and research tires for your car. They are rated for all different individual aspects of the tire, like wet performance, dry performance, handling, comfort, etc. They also show you how each different tire within a category rate against each other. There are also customer reviews for each tire. Very useful site.

There's a ton of great tires out there. It really depends on how you use your car. If you drive it in the Summer, then Summer tires are going to be very easy to find. If you drive it year round, rain, snow etc. then you may want to look into an all-season tire.

We offer Tires like Mickey Thompson, Falken, Nitto, Sumitomo, Perelli etc.. and you really cant' go wrong. I've run just about every different tire that we offer and never had a problem!

Keep in mind we also price match. So if you find a tire cheaper elsewhere, just let us know and we will price match for you! I hope this helps you with your decision.

+ 1 on tirerack.com

I also like any local Discount Tire...
They've always been good on prices, fix flats for free. I like to give them business when I can.

I definitely need all-season tires. On American Muscle I could only find two tires that were the correct size. But luckily the Sumitomos you guys have, tire rack has for $84 each so if I get those it will definitely be price matched from you guys!

I'll check into Discount Tire!

I've searched through Tire Rack and came up with Sumitomo, Kumho Ecsta, or Firestone Firehawk. If anyone has any comments on those, please chime in
