Looking at new tires
I need new tires rather urgently, my current ones look like they've got tons of tread left but I recently locked them way too easily in a panic situation. I've got a few questions.
My first one (I've searched and have not come up with an answer) is do I need to keep my tire size at 195/60 for stock steelies? What's the biggest width I can (safely) fit on those wheels? I don't have money for rims, this is a kinda urgent need for better tires, but I want to make it worth my time and money.
Second is the specific tire. I'm looking at Yokohama Avid H4S (or V4S, depending on the answer to the above question) as my first choice, and my second would be Kumho Ecsta HP4 716 (or Ecsta ASX, if I can find any nearby). I've looked at the reviews and they seem alright, but does anyone with a Celica have personal experience with these or other tires? Again, price is a concern, although new tires will be cheaper than an accident.
Finally, what is a fair price for mounting and balancing tires (not including the cost of the tire)? I'm looking at buying them online for cheaper and getting someone to install it seperately, if it all adds up cheaper.
Thanks in advance for you help.
