Hi guys, I am in the market for new tires. Right now I am using the stock bridgestone tires, however the tread is just about gone. There is maybe a half an inch left all around, and its a bit uneven. I need all weather tires since I live in Maryland and would like at least the same handling, traction, and comfort that the stock tires gave me. If it is possible, I would also like to get new rims with the tires...but I would want them to be lightweight since I dont want to weight down the car. I am running on the stock 15" alloy rims right now, so maybe a lightweight alloy 16 or 17" that will only add a few more pounds. The previous owner reversed into some shrubs so the rear rims are a bit scratched up.
Anyways, I dont need the best of the best, just good tires that wont run me in debt. I have looked at tirerack.com but it wasnt really any help because I dont know which brands of tires to look at, sizes, etc...
