    I think the general consensus on budget replacement tires is this:


    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.

    Thank you Top Fuel! Ill post the Faulkens when I put them on. Whats your opinion on the differences between 165 and 175s in regards to handling and cabin noise, in a general sense?

    My guess is they probably both handle about the same and have the same level of cabin noise. But surf around and check out the reviews. I'm not sure any tire is going to be super-quiet because of the lack of sound insulation in these cars.
