Default Need new rubbers

So I need new rubber... If I am to go to SEBF I have to have rubber by then, which is Oct. 26th-28th

I am trying to find the best for the least amount. Lesser price takes precedent to an extent. Right now im browsing online, Friday I'm going by the place where my current rubber came from (Merchant'* Tire) to see what they have to offer, we've done buissness with them for a long time and its been good, but i know they wont install unless we purchase from them...

Whats the Tire size for an '93 SSE
I have found a couple different tire sizes online...

any recommendations?

thanks

I think it would be 225/60/16 if yours are 16

I strongly recommend Falken ZE512s, they're the best bang for the buck IMO, mine cost just under 400 for the set

I got Bridgestone Potenza G009s for $400. Amazing tires for the money. I'm getting another set come spring time!

Pirelli isn't on Merchants either but what about the Pirelli P4s

Check out Hankook and Falken'*

I got 235x55R17'* for 109 each so im sure 225x60R16 would be less
