I noticed one of my front tires is down to the steel belts! (inside corner)

I was hoping the tires could have held out... I want to get some 18" wheels this winter and didn't want to buy new tires now.

So, I got the cheapest tire I could find, P275/40ZR-17 Sumitomo HTR Z ... $116 each at Tire Rack!

:surprised

Thats horribile.. it sucks to have to swap the new tires on because dealing with tires that are down to the belts even if you wear gloves it a pain.. I've been cut a few times..

It's better you found out while looking at them rather than a 70 mph. It could have been ugly.
