Default How long do tires last?

I bought a used set of oem ex rims that came with used dunlop tires. Its in the backyard and its been raining a lot. Will it ruin the tires? should i get new tires? the fronts looks like about 80% and rear about 30%. If you guys suggest me getting new tires, whats a good tire for a daily driver and a reasonable price?

No. Look closely at the tires. As long as they're not seriously cracked, they should be fine.

That depends. We need more information:

- What kind of car do you have (year, model, version)?

- What size wheels are they going on? (Don't say "EX rims" - they could be Civic EX rims, Accord EX rims, etc)

- Can we assume from your location that these tires will never be used in snow?

I'll make some assumptions:

- IF your car is a '94 Accord (which means it came from the factory with 185/70-14 or 195/60-15 size tires), and

- IF your wheels are 15" wheels, and

- IF the car will probably never be driven in snow,

THEN the proper size tires for your car are 195/60-15, and a good daily driving tire for a reasonable price is the Yokohama ES100, for $79/tire at the Tire Rack.
