Really?? Check out the pic....and that's with free shipping...he could easily pay for a mount and balance and still be under budget..

As for OP, are you looking for summer only performance tires or all season?

I bought 4 new tires recently and I am very pleased with them. I compared them with the Nitto 555's and they compared quoted favorably, especially in the wet. They were $528 door to door for all four. They are Falken FK 452's and I ordered them from discounttiredirect.com . Oh, and they all have a manufacture date newer than June of 2011, which I was real happy about.

Well sure if your talking about a tire that wide....I doubt he's running tires that wide if he's posting that he wants to stay below 180 a tire.

If you want cheap in price with tires you get cheap in quality. If its your DD and you don't plan on drag racing it go with sumitomo tires from AM. Even the 315s are cheaper than $180 a tire. I have them for my DD right now and have no problems with them.......they are def no Nittos but better than really cheap tires.
