best deal for tires..anyone tried sunny tires?

hey guys..im looking to buy some new rubber..right now im short on money due to job layoff and piles of bills..

so i was searching online for just a good price on tires 255 45 18

and i found some good prices at onlinetires.com i searched by size (255 45 18) and i found a sunny tire for about $80 each and a federal tire for about $85 each i could save the shipping cost by picking the order up since their warehouse is close by..

has anyone on here tried or heard of sunny tires before? how about federal tires?

They're both Taiwanese brands. I don't know much beyond that, though...

What's your budget for tires ?

If you're able to up your ante some, you can get into some decent, reputable brand name tires.

Otherwise, another option is to look into used tires.

well right now i am rolling on 1 new potenza (extra tire that came with the x) and 2 used original potenza that need to be replaced asap (have gotten about 55,000 miles out of them)...and 1 used nexen tire that i just got mounted on the past week because i got a flat tire on my way to work...

so right now i can pretty much get away with buying two tires in order to replace the two worn out potenzas..

any body know some good black friday deals going on for tires?

if im gonna replace all 4 tires i guess my budget would be tops 110 per tire..

but if i only replace the 2 potenzas then maybe the budget is higher..

any recomendations?

Stay away from cheap tires. Road Force match that sunny tire and you will see that it is a crap tire.

You should also get 4 new tires. Not good to be driving a truck with 3 different tread patters and half of them bald. Not a smart decision.

i work at a tire store. nicer tires= better traction for longer time+ better ride quality+longer life. i would go with the nicest tire you can afford. its well worth the few extra bucks. as far as sunny and federal tires go, federal is a step up from the sunny but still not that great, i sell the federal as a entry level tire, it will do the job but wont ride very good. the sunny tires are bottom the barrel, but at the same time 4 new tires are far better than what your running now. lol
