I think the general consensus on budget replacement tires is this:
- If you want 165-65-14s, go with Federal SS657 for $50.
- If you want 175-65-14s, go with Faulken Sincera SN250 for $45.
These are both respectable budget tires that have generally positive reviews.
The Faulkens (80,000 treadlife) may last almost twice as long as the Federals.
Avoid the really cheap tires that nobody has ever heard of.
