Default Best source for used (cheap) rally tires?

Well, after my first Rallycross, one thing was blatantly obvious: I need better tires than RE92's. A lot of people just say to buy new snow tires, but I'm looking a little bit cheaper than that. Any suggestions? Also, what about rims? Can I just go with steelies?

Going to the Maine Forest Rally? Post on Specialstage that you're looking for worn-out rally tires, and I'm sure some of the competitors will sell them to you at the event. Figure out size first.

Yes, I am going to the rally. I thought that might be a good place to find them. How do I determine what size I need? I don't have steel rims yet to put them on, so it's pretty much open. I really don't think that I want to get rally rims, because of the cost.....

For a light, early, non-turbo Impreza? 14/62-15 for Michelins. Whatever's comparable for other brands. Don't make the mistake of getting the huge tires the turbo guys run. They weigh a ton and will suck the horsepower right out of your car.

Mount them on junkyard 15x6 alloys or steelies.

No. 14 cm wide tread (tread, not section). 62 cm diameter. 15 inch wheel. It's about a 185/65-15 using street tire sizes.

Last Ditch Racing run a 1994 L, and are based in Maine. They may have some old tires and/or rims laying around.
