I don't want used tires in this case. I want 4 matching tires and that's hard to come by not to mention finding decent ones that are not worn funny. Though I may check out some places and just see what they have. I do plan on hitting some high speeds hence why I want some new ones. The SVT is capable of hitting a much higher top speed than Ole' Yeller lol

Discounttiredirect has horrible prices IMO, you can get the Kumho AST for 80 bucks at the discount tire store. That's a 40 buck difference lol


I'll probably drive into Houston and check out some mom and pop stores and see what they have or can do.

Well got rear Massive strut bar installed. Somehow the lower mounting hole I drilled on the passenger side ended up off a bit so I will need to unbolt and elongate that hole downwards just a bit. Lost the washers for 2 of the mounting bolts so I will get a slightly larger sized washers to correct for this LOL. Then I will get the bolts for the lower mounting points installed :)
