Default WTB - 205/55-16 tires only with good tread - Cheap!

As the title says. I'm looking for pretty much any set of tires in this size. Must have decent tread left and be cheap. I'm open to pretty much any brand so let me know what you have.

I would prefer something located around Philly - I'm about 30 minutes from there in PA.

Thanks,
Jeff

I have 2 205/55R16 Bridgestone RE-92's with 5/32 tread left for $25 picked up. I'm about an hour north of Philly.

Sorry, I should've been a bit more specific. I already have snows, and am only looking for all seasons (or maybe summer tires).

Hmmm, I maybe interested. Can you snap a pic of the tread? When can you dismount the tires?

HTR+ are also awsome tires. They usually have a tread wear of about 30-35k miles max but for $150 that's not a bad price at all.

here are my crappy cell phone pics:




i know those photos are terrible, but that's my only option for getting you pictures in a timely manner. hopefully, they are good enough to show you that there is a lot of tread is left. the tires are in very good shape...i just decided to run dedicated summers and dedicated winters, so i have no need for the all-seasons any more. as far as getting the tires dismounted, i can do that whenever, but i have to go somewhere to have it done. i don't know if it will cost anything since i don't have tires i am ready to put on there yet, and they technically only charge for the mounting and balancing of the new tires. if it does, i'd like to recoup that cost on top of the $150.
