I bought a set of rims from a NASIOC and I blew out one of the tires and it looks as if i am due just for a new set, the rims have Falken FK451 tires now but does anyone have any recommendations or knows a good site that has good prices because i am kinda on a budget-thanks

Do you want summer tires, winter tires or all seasons?

What size (width and diameter) wheels do you have?

I 2nd the Falken FK451. They are absolutely my favorite budget performance tire. I did a lot of research before throwing down on some new tread. I got mine for $400 installed, my brother got his set for $440. 225-45-16's

Here in Florida I find my Kumho 716s HP4s are excellent wet & dry for a reasonable price.

+1 for Falken 451. I've had them for almost a year. Awesome wet tire, and definately hold their own on dry pavement.
