Many tires seems to be good when new and driving normally. But it matter the most when you need its grip for few short seconds during unexpecting conditions. Its also why wach tire have its rating and user reviews.
I can save on gas, on un-necessary repair, on discounted item, but I will never cut cost on getting new tire, I normally replace my tire when its down to 40~50% thread. I involved in accident due to tires so I will never let it happen again. There's no way I will go for cheap tire. Its a safety issue!!
I strongly not recommend those non-brand tire from chain retailer like autozone, pepboys......I'm involved in one accident during my 11 years of driving and it was due a set of cheap Futura tires from pepboys.
