Went to the Big O Tires location on Centennial Center this AM. Two Big O brand Euro tour tires at $117 a piece + tax It would run me $250 after tax most likely - half of the $125 rebate which came to $62.50 so I'm looking at close to $200 + tax for two tires

Im going to check the used tire shops along Rancho that sell new tires as well. I had to buy a new tire from a used tire shop on Rancho and....Washington, somewhere around there and they had charged me $61 for a brand new tire. I may go through them again

Desert Nissan also has tires starting around $75 so I will give them a call as well

Now I'm in the needing new tires boat at the WORSE time ever (unemployed at the moment). I was considering going to one of those used tire shops. I just need some tires to hold me over until I get a new job. I really can't afford all brand new at this time.

Lots of Mexican Llantera joints on Nellis will sell you used tires for $20. It will get you by, that's true.

Can you still find retreads or is that no longer legal?

I have no idea what retreads means ... :-(

When I called Discount Tires to get a quote after he finished giving me the grand total of tires plus the cost to put them on and taxes I told the guy I'd probably buy used tires. He was like well just look out for XYZ but you probably won't be able to tell because you have to look for blah blah blah blah. I then asked well ummm If I won't be able to tell ... why are you telling me to look out for it? lol

Is there metal threads coming out of the tires? If not, I would continue driving on them until that happens. You might be surprised on how much longer your current tires will last.

The best place to buy tires (IMHO anyway), if online. Different sites have different prices on different tires. Tirerack is usually pretty expensive though. My current retailer of choice is http://www.onlinetires.com.

Good prices, cheap shipping.

Then you just carry the new tires down to discount, and they will mount and balance then for $60.

I thought they were outlawed years ago, but as I whizzed by a tire joint the other day I'd swear it said retreads on the sign. They don't sell them for 18 wheelers do they? They're always losing treads on the highway.
