Hey Everybody, I need some positive suggestions....
My oldest son moved from Cincinnati to Atlanta last November. He is rolling around in a 07 Scion TC, which he lowered 1.5 inches. We want to buy him four new tires for his Christmas gift.
I was attempting to find a national retailer that I can buy the tires in Cincinnati while he was at home visiting with us at Christmas, but he could have the roadside warranty honored in Atlanta if he needed to.
Normally when I purchase tires for my other vehicles (Honda CRV / Civic)
I always purchase Michelin tires. With low profile tires, I’m clueless. I know low profile tires tend to blowout the sidewalls due from improper tire pressure & hitting potholes in roads. Usually I blow off the roadside warranty when I purchase new tires, but with the low profile tire, it’s been suggested that I purchase this option
Which brand/model should I be looking at? I was comparing the Goodyear F1 Eagle all season tires at Sears / Wal-Mart / Tire Rack
For example “IF” I purchased the Goodyear Eagles at
Sears - $848.00 (Tires / mounting alone)
Wal-Mart - $830.00 (mounting, stems & balancing)
Tire Rack - $700.00
(Including shipping, mounting & balancing)
