Default I was a sucker for cheap tires

I bought four sets on Monday: 1 set for my daily, 1 for my locost, and 2 for the lemons car.



Add that to the already ridiculous amount I have on the back storage rack. This kind of stuff accumulates when there are three guys storing track miatas at one house. lol



Crap expands to space allotted

I did the discount tire direct deal with $50 off a set and another $80 off from Falken. I got four sets for a little more than the price of two.

I also have some 215/40/16 RS-2's that I got for $45/each and 2 sets of 205/50/15 RA1's for $65/tire when they thought spec miata was going away from them forever.

Wanted to do it so I could finally drop these damned Daisy's but couldn't pull the trigger. Crossing my fingers I can find a deal on tires after I move.

Follow you around, hardly, but it's a bit sad when an "adult" doesn't know the difference between "sell" and "sale". Seems that you also lack basic reading comprehension. Just calling it how I see it, sorry man!

But back on topic!!

I almost bought a set of the Falkens, but need to get rid of 2 sets of stock wheels with tires before I mount a 3rd set.

I was going to buy all they had and sell them off to you guys for whatever I paid for them, but they only had 2 sets. I need them!

Yeah it seems kind of bad, but we don't live together. The cars just get to stay in my garage. The wife doesn't really give a damn either, but she is pretty laid back.
