    Getting the tires rotated and about to do another Techron treatment.

    My Falken Sincera SN250 tires currently have 74,530 miles on them and visually the tread looks fine. I'll ask President Lincoln what he thinks next time I have a penny in my pocket.

    Apparently President Lincoln has better eyes than me. I do have tread left but it is getting close. President Lincoln says it is now time to order a new set of tires.

    Unfortunately Walmart does not have my beloved SN250 tires available for order. Looks like I might be changing brands.

    Walmart may be out-of-stock temporarily, but they will reappear. If you really like these tires, Walmart gives you 7 other sellers that have them. Just not quite as cheap.

    I would never assume Walmart has the cheapest price on tires either. Last time I bought tires, Walmart lost out to other vendors like simpletire.com or tires-easy.com. These things vary, however. If you rely on Walmart mounting your tires, that's another factor. I have a local mechanic that will mount and balance tires for $10 each. It's less if I buy the tires through him. If you have one of those guys in your area, it may be a good place to start. The local shops out do the big chains in my area. Farm & Fleet for example have good deal on tires, but you can't buy their tires without their service. A set of four are cheaper elsewhere. It's a hidden ripoff.

    Seven vendors of your tires offered by Walmart -

    simpletire.com & tires-easy.com may be better than those prices. Tire prices have been going up and down lately. Getting them for $50 is much better, but $65 for a good tire isn't bad either.

    I'm not sure what you'll think of these, but I have them on one of my cars and they've been pretty good to me.

    70,000 mile warranty. $44.07 each as of today.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I almost ordered a set of those tires yesterday. Walmart had them on their website yesterday for about $30 a tire. Unfortunately, when I tried to order a set of four, the website told me they only had two in stock.

    I checked again this morning and the price of my beloved SN250 tires has dropped to $50 a tire, although they aren't in stock. Go figure. I set an alert to notify me when the tires are in stock so I guess I'll just hold out.

    I prefer getting my tires from Walmart because of how cheap installation is when you buy their tires. I think I pay something like $12 a tire for installation and that includes lifetime balance and rotation nationwide. I never get road hazard. I have a good unmounted tire I keep stored at home. That is my tire insurance policy.

    Incidentally, I am planning to replace my TPMS sensors this go around and get the new codes programmed into my ECU at the dealership.

    Now its time to search this forum for the sensors that are confirmed to work with this car. I've been driving around for over 150k miles without a functioning TPMS system.

    The Falken tires have been good for you. I don't blame you for holding out for a bit. Some people like to rip on Walmart, but they are everywhere & things are affordable including service items.

    May be more than you want to read, but Top_Fuel shared some good points about cloning existing sensors.

    https://mirageforum.com/forum/showth...uick-Reference

    You can clone all of your existing sensors, even the bad one (unless you tossed it). If you tossed it, it may include a trip to the dealership anyways. In that case, you may want to stick with your plan. Cloning is an option, however. I plan on cloning my snow tires to the other set some day. Next time I change tires maybe? Makes sense to do those things when changing tires like you are doing!

    Thanks for the great info. Unfortunately I don't have two of my original sensors so I can't get away with cloning as I am not able to obtain all of the original IDs.

    It looks like I will be getting a set of un-cloned sensors and having the dealership program their IDs into the ECU.

    I'll be ordering these sensors tonight unless someone has a better product to suggest.
