    Question Looking for good deal on new tires 2012 CTS

    Hello,

    Looking for a good deal on tire size 235/50ZR18, something that will last (especially tread-wise.) I drive a lot and I don't want tires that will need replacing after 6mo-1yr. Any suggestions? Previously, I've been one to go with a used tire if one is needed here and there, but I want to take care of this car. My other cars were wobbly and I've constantly had balancing/alignment/other problems associated with suspension and wheels/tires. Bubbled tires after JUST getting one, leaky tires... all problems that come with buying used tires, I've had them.

    Please help! I'm not trying to spend an arm and a leg here! Trying to stay around $80-$100/each or less.. but I'm worried I'll end up wasting my money on something that ends up worn out too soon.

    Anything in that price range that is actually worth a damn? There are a few around $60-$90 but are any of them actually made with any QUALITY that will last me awhile??

    Tires are your ONE contact with the road. That means your life depends on them.

    If you buy cheap crap, that's what your life is worth. You can probably get a cheap crap set of red chinese tires for 100 bucks each, but they'll be worth every cent of that cheapness.

    I would look into the Nexen brand of tire they normally give a free replacement for the first 25% (just have to pay for mounting/balancing) after the 25% they are pro rated...

    Your local discount tire might have leftover stock of a good, name brand tire. Worth giving them a call.

    If you don't want to spend big on Michelin I'd strongly consider Yokohama, BF Goodrich, Continental, and Bridgestone.

    Nexen is what I'd consider the best of the economy brands.

    Kumhos do the job but tend to get quite noisy as they age.

    Check your local Wally World. They sell many brands of tires very reasonable.
    Many stores have deals on mis-ordered sets of fancy tires at good prices.

    Even their CHEAPER brands have BETTER treadwear , temp., etc. ratings than some of those
    supposed fancy/trendy/$pendy,name brands!

    These:

    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vercelli-...iABEgK94fD_BwE

    I put Vercelli Strada II's on the wife's XTS Platinum. $78 a tire.
    They're better than the Bridgestone RE 97's (that cost $213 each at Tire Rack) that were on it. These are $85.
    They don't have Strada II's in your size, only Strada I's.
