Question I need new tires bad! what tires are good?

Ok where can I go to get cheep but good tires. I no about tirerack.com and discounttiredirect.com I think I want to get hankook tires. About 100 a tire. Anyone try em yet? I don't like perrelles. Or hoever the hell it is spelled. They wear way to quick!

ContiExtremeContact, have them on 3 cars. We have a local shop that's very competitive with the onlines (not a chain). Call around.

Nope, but I did, and am looking to get them again... They come in an all season radial and have good performance... not that bad of a tire for the money, i think they last like 60,000 miles if not more, that is how long they are warrantied for, no road noise that I could hear.

And that label, does have a lot of codes, lol

Yea I am trying to find a good set to replace the stock perelli's(sp). Want something with better grip but not TOO bad of tread life.
