You might want to check the wear bars on the other tires. No point in making multiple trips to the tire pile.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Go to any tire dealer and ask if they have andy Factory take offs. those are tires that have been replaced by someone who wants a different brand on their car. Tire dealers give people trade in on their factory ones but it is minimal.

When i had a tahoe i needed two tires and i bought two factory take offs and it cost me like 60 bucks for name brand ones that matched the ones on the rear of my truck.

Look in your local yellow pages for tire places and go to the one that says "used tires" . You should be able to get a tire mounted and balanced for around $20. Write down the tire size you need and call ahead or just have it handy when you walk into the shop. Telling the guy you need two used 15-235/75 radials will cut out the BS of them trying to sell you a set.
