I picked up a set of 225/75/15s for my wagon. Discount Tire had a black Friday weekend sale. So I got 4 Kumho Solus KR21s, 85000 mile tire for $250.00 for the set, with 6 months same as cash. I would like to go a little bigger but since that the original size I can live with them. They still show them on the website for a good deal if anyone needs some.
I am glad I replaced the radiator, and got the tires, so I can trust driving it on longer trips. I drove it to a Christmas party Saturday, about 75 miles round-trip, my son and I enjoyed taking it. The ride in these B-bodys is excellent.
I am going to enjoy the car a lot more in 15. Very Happy

That's a damn good price. The KR21 is a good tire.

Pete - they used to come as a whitewall. The ones listed on tire rack right now on that size aren't, though.

Yes blackwalls, I have truck rally's and caps on the car so I wanted blackwalls anyway, if they were white lettered, I would have had to make a decision. lol Laughing

That's what I have been running but in a 235/70-15. They have worn a little faster than I expected tho. They are 11/32 to start, at 25k they are down to 6/32. I rotate, balance, and align on a regular basis. However, cannot complain about grip, expecially in the snow. I'm on 8" rally's, so I'm curious how yours wear as well.

I haven't really had any issues I can prove with the tires. Discount replaced two of my tires today prorated as I believe one was out of round. Their service was pretty good. They added my other two tires to the warranty plan, even though I didn't buy from them originally.
