got a great deal on tires wanted to share!!

So I needed summer tires for my foci this year and dont have a huge budget. Idid a lot of research trying to find a good tire came across the kumho ecsta pa31's 205/50/16 they have good reviews.

They are priced at $76 per tire so its a fairly cheap tire with good reviews. Originally I saw them on tire rack and was going to buy from them until I saw them on tread depot they were the same price but have a $50 dollar rebate with them.

I just ordered them so will have to wait and see how it turns out but the transaction was easy I just wanted to let anyone who might need tires what a great deal tread depot is offering.

cost me $302 for 4 tires shipped to my door.

My math doesn't match
"They are priced at $76"
Then you find a better deal
"Have a $50 dollar rebate"
And you ended paying
"$302 for 4 tires"
76X4-50=254.... So where's the savings!

OK I see it now... TY for your response

Are they already on your car? Do you like them? They look like they have good reviews, though they were only released a few months ago (August?), so their tread wear and durability are still kind of unknown. I think I'm willing to find out for the price.

I need new tires in a week or two so I wanted your opinion (handling, noise) if you have them installed!

EDIT: Ooh, but I just realized Hankook has a $60 rebate this month now too! Decisions...

I just installed them on my car today! took them for a quick test run got it up to 70 on a small stretch of road to check out balance and whatnot. I have a 30 mile highway drive tomorrow so I will update. they sounded really quiet so far. they look pretty good not low pros but I didn't want that I want a good tire that will last me a long time and be all around of good quality. I mounted them on my snowflakes i will snap a picture tomorrow. got the old tires taken off and disposed of and the new tires on and balanced for 50 bucks from my favorite shop. total on the tires is $352 mounted!!! I feel that I got a really good deal.
