    $45 including mounting and balancing is a great deal. Check out out hold they are though, if they've been sitting for a long time the rubber might be hardened up. There's a 4 digit code on the tires that will tell you the month and year they were manufactured in.

    Sorry, I was a little off, the first 2 digits are the week it was manufactured and the second 2 digits are the year. Here's a link:

    Not a bad deal. Let me first say that I am by no means a tire expert or in the tire industry. I am very much about safety. With that being said, I would check the manufacture date on the sidewall of the tire. Most tire makers do not recommend the use of a tire 5 years after manufacture date. That way you can avoid tire failures such as blow outs, leaks ect.. How do you read a manufacture date you ask? You may see something like this: DOT CC9L [YYY1105].

    DOT: Tire has met or exceeded Dept. of Transportation requirements
    CC : Identifies the plant where the tire was manufactured
    9L : Is used to represent the tire size
    YYY: These letters represent other characteristics of the tire determined by the manufacturer
    *** Now the original point***
    11: Identifies the week the tire was manufactured
    05: Identifies the year the tire was manufactured

    In this case [YYY1105] means the tire was manufactured March 2005.

    Just a little thought before you buy a used tire. I am not saying they are bad in any way. As a matter of fact, if i were you, I would jump on those before someone else grabs them. $180 for a full set is that will last you around 2 years or more is a good deal. Just my $.02
