Actually, it's been time for tires for about the last three months, but tough are times and it's hard to fork out a significant amount of money on anything lately so I've had to save pennies and I finally have enough to buy shoes for my ol' girl.
As always, price is a factor as well as tread wear, mileage, and noise when it comes to getting my new tires. Thankfully it's April, and one of the best times to buy tires is NOW.
The original tire size is 195/65r14, but if I go up to 195/70's I have a larger selection and it's a little cheaper per tire. I know it's not a huge jump in size, but will it be worth it?
Also, I found a set of 4 Falken Sincera SN-828's for $260 including shipping, the price is only good for the next 4 days. Has anyone ever had any experience with these tires? I do have a 70+ mile commute 5 days a week and the tread wear on these guys is 500, but I'm not the type to drive it like I stole it or anything. I've found mixed reviews on these tires, but most are on the good side. I'm going to be doing the mounting/balancing myself (thank you, Parris Island hobby shop!) and I'll take her out in town to get an alignment. I only have so much to spend on my tires, and these are a good deal so I'll get a little cash to put aside for other things that I need to do - such as replacing the lower intake gasket on my Blazer.
Any input will be appreciated! Thanks guys!
