New tires for my Borrego
I bought a 2009 Kia Borrego at the end of November. This past Wednesday, I had a flat tire on the driver side rear wheel. The AAA technician blamed dry rot for the crack in the sidewall of the tire.
I'm planning on investing much of my tax return in quality tires, but I don't want to spend needlessly. The Michelin LTX M / S 2 looks well reviewed, and I found them at a local dealer for $200 a tire.
Do you all have any suggestions for me? I live in Indiana, so I get a decent amount of winter weather. I live very close to work, so the only real wear and tear they'll see is when I go north to see my parents once a week or so, about 30 miles round trip, mostly highway.
