Default New Tires

On my way home from work today one of my front tires blew. Had no trouble throwing on the spare and went to the nearest tire place to get my PT checked out. The guy told me I would need 4 new tires, the other front is pretty worn. I currently have on Goodyear Eagle RSAs and he told me about $180 a tire to replace them. I don't know much about tires, should I just replace these? or are there better tires for the buck out there? I like the low look of the Goodyears and want to keep the same look, I don't even know if that is an issue or not.

thanks
john

If you can, shop around. There's a lot of bad talk on the forums about the RSA's. Just stop in or call around to other dealers, give them your size and ask what they have have in stock or what they can get you overnight. $180. is way too much. Like MTL09 said; the guys looking to get a free vacation on your $$$

If I were you i'd get the Sumomoto's. I love the tires they produce. I have used them in the past & cuttently just put a set on a Audi TT quattro. Absolutely no problems. I'm also putting them on teh corvette when it gets finished.
The best part is they are $65 from tirerack(for your size).
