In the Popped Tire Didn?t Notice thread, someone ( I think it was GranTourismoInection) mentioned that his replacement tire was going to cost $512. I have paid under $250 for one directional racing tires before. Is he for real? Is that the going rate? I do not need new tires yet, but cannot see paying that for each. So, IF he is not talking out of his ass, what are good alternative tires that any of you have used on a GTI. If it helps, I have 18" Huffs.
Please keep your responses to actual experience. I have had my fill of: "Don?t get brabd X, they suck.", or "Don?t get brand Y, they are made in Afganistan.". The advice that flows the free-est on here, comes from people that are clueless about what you are talking about in the first place.
