Which are $269 a piece. I'm not going to give you a brand name. There are many good name brand tires out there, just stick to them. I have seen this question asked dozens of times here on the Forum, and each time 20 people will swear 20 different brands are the best. I would look at the Price, Wear and Traction Ratings first, then consider reports and recommendations.
I'm referring to people who buy the wal-mart special tires, and then wonder why they're in the ditch come some rain.

I thought thats what you were saying. And I know why personally. I bought a set at Western Auto back in the day, forget the name, cheap "local brand",.... I took a Falcon to just over a buck and the passenger tire shredded on me. I have really paid attention to speed ratings since.
