Default Cheap Tire Websites/ Tire Suggestion?

Hello CL!

Im getting ready to order my wheels this week, and im looking to buy some cheap summer tires online. Are there any good websites? I checked tire-easy.com and they seem to be the cheapest around. Also to add possibly cheaper than my hook up at a tire shop getting whole sale pricing.

Im looking for cheap tires, decent thread wear, all season or summers.. 235/35/20

On going cheap because im not tracking my car or going to be driving 140mph lol. Some may hate it but im going with the stanced, hella flush, or whatever people call it now and days ; generally going slam/low and slow.

Any suggestion will help, Thanks in advance!

Just because you don't track the car or drive 140 doesn't mean you shouldn't put some decent shoes on your car...

That is very true... But I wasn't planning to put a Chinese name brand tire on my car.. I was maybe suggesting cheaper brands; as in Sunny,Achilles, etc..

Where do you think Sunny tires are made? Achilles are Indonesian, which aren't a huge step up...

It's not even where they are built though, its who does the R&D to make a tire actually good...

Don't go cheap on tires, they are the ONLY and DIRECT contact between your car and the road. If you ever autocross/race, you will know number one improvement on handling is upgrading the tires. No matter how good the car is even a super car, if you put on cheap tire, you literally killing the performance. Also, good tires are also good for your safety as well.

If you want the tires to last and also offering good performance, buy ultra high performance all seasons tires like the Continental DWS or something similar which will last you like 40-50k miles while providing pretty good comfort and handling performance.

Places to buy tires with good value: Discount Tires Direct, Ebay.
