another bad tire

so i have another nail in tire, almost in the sidewall so no one is willing to patch it

so i dont know if i should replace the bad tire with another of the same or start going with another set

2 of the 3 good tires have about 30k miles, the other has about 20k, most people using them get about 60 out of them

i can get another for 76 from tire rack, and that almost makes me wanna stay with them at least another year... but i'm not sure

i know, i should just hope it doesnt leak, save up the money and get a lift and some new rims and tires but it wont happen...

Go ahead and get one. In a year, you should have enough saved up to get a lift and bigger tires.

or you can try to find a good used tire the same size. I bought one for 30 bucks mounted before.

Well, he posted a link for a 245/75/16 so I assume that is what he needs... haha

I say just try and find a used tire...thats probably your best bet. If you can't find a used one, find the cheapest tire you can find in the same size and run that for a year until you can get a lift and new tires. You will only be disappointed if you buy 4 new tires now, then lift it and have to roll around on small tires with a lift next year.
