Default Wow what a difference

My PT tires were almost 200$ each...I found out 13" tires for my Corolla winter car....are 40$ each....For 6 months I will have cheaper fuel costs, cheaper insurance, and my GT PT can hibernate in my garage....what a deal ...makes me look a little more forward to winter

Your Corolla looks like a nice ride.

You paid $200 a piece for the tires on your PT????

Belle Tire or Discount Tire...even Tire Rack can be very reasonable, esp. with their deals.

I know it's too late, but you got jipped!

Corolla tires were $40 each and it still cost you $500? Where did the other $300 go? I got 2 tires for my PT a week ago. They were usually $115 each; got them for $95 each.

No...Frank I mean I paid 500$ for the whole Corolla car....the tires are 40$ each...for a total of 160$ for the 4 tires...sorry to have been unclear...I bought the car for 500$...I bought a used taillight, 1 missing hubcap, a can of spray paint, and some pinstriping for the car. I'm into it for about 600$ now including the price of the car. The tires will be another 160$

Actually I head the $200 tires for the PT are the ones that are rated for like 450 mph. They say your tires should be rated for about double the speed that would would drive on them.

If anyone gets their PT to 225 mph please record it and post it on this site

You should be able to get the tires rated at about 220mph for jsut over $100 per tire...
