We are in need of a desperate set of tires. We purchased our tires with 85,000 mile warranty and they only have 42,000 miles on them. All four are completely worn all the way across them. They have been properly rotated and inflated through out ownership. They simply are a cheap tire-Douglas.

We want to check with other Raleigh and surrounding residents for the best tire prices around. We have seen Kumhos have grown in popularity and are priced really good.

Any ideas?

Tires that last for 42,000 miles are about right. I have bridgstone duelers and they really suck. I had the same ones on my last car and they won't last past 30k even with proper tire pressure and rotation (which I do reg.). A tire that would last 85k would have to be one hell of a tire. You should never really expect to get more than 40k out of them, unless you like driving around on bad (bald) tires that are prone to slip in rain, ice, or snow.

I have bought tires for mine and my wife's car of of The Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels They have good prices and tons of customer reviews. They will ship them to your house, or to a tire shop where you would like them installed. I just got some really good kumos for my wife's little sports car and it was cheaper to buy these tires from them, have them shipped and then put on at the tire store, rather then just buying average passenger car tires at the tire shop and having it installed. I would give tirerack a look.

Thumbs up for Kumhos. Great tires, great value.

The Tire Rack has a program where they ship to local mom and pop garages who then install/balance them. I'd check their website.

We love Just Tires, walk in and it gets done quickly, even on a Satruday.

I had a flat and needed new back tires anyway, we went up there and had my car back with 2 new tires all rotated and balanced, new ones in the front, 2 old ones moved to the back in less than 2 hours, very impressed and great customer service!

If you want really good used tires, I would hit up Murray's. Its right next door to the Harley Davidson place right outside of downtown Raleigh. Prices usually run about $25 per tire and they install it. I know they also sell new tires pretty cheap as well.

Really nice guy, they dont allow profanity on the grounds and they do really good business.

Sam's Club because of their tire warranty. They rebated $26/tire on 4 year old dry rotted tires with good tread.

Discount Tire on Six Forks will match tire rack price and give you a free warranty or you can buy one for free replacement (no proation) and you get free rotations and flat repair service and re balance all for free. and they wont try to sell you alingments,brakes or shocks because they only do tires. and they will have you done in less then 1 hour.
