im running 16"s atm got goodyear excellence but the fronts have got really bad tread so they need replacing.. i dont know weather to just replace the front two but that will cost me about 180 sticking to the same tyres, or a new set of 4 non run flats which will still be about 250 for a set or i can get a set of part worns for 80.. bearing in mind im a student with no income and im asking my dad to pay for the tyres what would be the best ones to get? im tempted for part worns due to being so cheap but at 20 a tyre im not feeling too confident, any thoughts please?
I'd get the new set of 4 non runflats..its false economy getting part worns, because your gonna have to get new tyres again, and sooner, so therefor spending more money in the end up than if you just spend that little extra just now!
love how you all say get new tyres, part worns have gotta be better than bald tyres surely, and i wont get points for them as i dont really have the cash for a full set of brand new or even 2 new rf flats right now
Also..say you'l pay for as much as you can too..he might feel sorry for you and just pay for the lot!..go onnnnn lay the guilt trip..I do all the time..when I was at college I had "Im a poor student" and Im an only child..you owe me this" now i've only got "im an only child..."
i wanted to see if anyone had experience as to whether it really makes a big difference, from your responses it does.. might have to offer to pay out my student loan then hopefully hell just get them anyway, but i need a new bonnet or to get it repaired (huge rock got flung up at my bonnet), new breakes, engine oil and tyres only had the car 4 months
