its gonna very form place to place. cheapest set you could find will probably be a set of 2nd, maybe 3rd hand remoulds...

i paid $125 each for newies (non remoulds) but they're s**t. its frightening how easy it is to chuck the car sideways or engage the abs, on b**ch...in the dry...

if you can afford it, id try and get a half decent set of tires.

TYRES, you mean? you pay for what you get, anything below 220 odd , will be not that good. As in Sava Intensas.

Meh, at least you have a car, getting nice rims and kit is only a matter of time and money.
Something will come up!

they are the second best tyre toyo make. the next one up is called the t1r. but the t1r only handles a bit better nothing much between them. all i can say is that they stick like s**t to a blanket. they fling me through little roundabouts at 140 kph
