    stock, for now
    i wouldnt personally buy tires off ebay just for the fact that if something is wrong with them, or a flat or anything, then your stuck footing the bill. Just spend the extra $80 and get them at a local dealer

    570 for retreads, don't do it. i can buy retreaded tires out here for my honda for 35 bucks, save more money and buy them at a tire shop.

    Yeah...That is WAY to much for retreads. Another problem with buying tires like that is you may not be able to get a shop to mount them.
    Some shops don't even like mounting tries from places like TireRack.com cause of the liability.

    It's worth it to get good, new tires even if you have to spend a bit more.

    Stay away from retreads. As a driver of 18 wheelers I woould never put treads on my own pov. Spend a little extra cash for safety.

    Only ones I've ever bought there were stickered new ones. No retreads on any of my vehicles. Aren't some new tires iffy enough? I'd use one as cheap full size tire on long road trip situation but that'd just be to get me home & get new one.
