Default Tires?

I have 272 thousand miles on my 2001 ssei. I really need new tires, but I dont know what kind to get. Also, I dont know if it is worth it to buy good tires due to the milage. Any help?

You can spend 2k on tires and put them on a POS car with 5 million miles and it won't make a world of difference.

You can get el cheapo tires, but no gaurantee that they will balance right, or not last as long as the better ones.

You get what you pay for.
