I hate buying new tires! It seems like the biggest waste of money. So what that they keep you on the road and help you stop. They are expensive and you seem to replace them all the time. I hate them! But my little Honda Fit does use 15″ tires, which is cool.
I do only buy Firestone tires though because they have a higher failure rate! Or was that just on crappy Ford Explorers tires?
