    Better Cheaper tires

    So I recently got my Camaro Z28 back a couple months ago. People are telling me the stock tires are 200 bucks a pop. My dad says they are garbage and some Comp TA's are cheaper and better. Hes old school though. Anyone know of an upgrade? Cheaper would be great. I cant afford 200$ a tire.

    There are lots of options. If you go with a name brand you should be fine. You can go to tire rack and see some options. You should be able to get some for around a 100 a tire, maybe less.

    You will have to make a comprimise of whether you want stickier or longer lasting. Look at the treadwear ratings, higher number means longer lasting.

    That is the speed rating. If you look at your tire size it will tell you the speed rating.
