It's almost time for me to buy tires for my faitful Silverado...
Having an older truck, you tend to make more "preflight" inspections than with a new(er) vehicle. Especially with 230k miles showing on the odometer. Well, over the weekend I noticed my tires are looking fairly worn and not far from needing replacement.
So, I started poking around on the internet to price some new rubber. Man are prices insane! Fortunately I've still got my factory 15-inch wheels, which helps fight off high tire prices. Usually I can get away for about $65, installed, per wheel/tire.
For the guys out there with 18, 19, and 20-inch wheels, no such luck. just doing some cursory pricing showed a minimum price of about $105 bucks! And that's before installation, balancing, old tire disposal, and all the usual BS state fees and taxed.
Just goes to show, sometimes smaller is better!
