I'm looking for some new tires. I had some good year 4 season 175/70r13's that i was really satisfied with, but I'm looking for a pair of those and a summer pair as to not wear those ones out too quickly. What does everyone on here recommend?

I would be also curious to know :D. A while back I got new tires and thought I was getting a good deal. About 4k later I find that the tires are now scalloped and causing vibration. So this time around I plan on spending a little more :D.

I just bought and had mounted my second set of Yokohama Avid Touring 175/70/13's. About $37 per tire. From Tirerack.com. The system has worked fine for me. Order the tires. The tires show up on the doorstep a few days later. Pay a local guy $10 per tire to mount and balance. This is an all season tire with 80K mile warranty. Forget the warranty. Expect more like 50K out of the tires. I have found this to be a good fit, good ride in snow and summer weather, and reasonable price.

I like round tires, that have tread on them, and hold air.
