[DML] Re: In a bind with tires

Be careful that you are getting a passenger car tire and not a trailer or off-road tire. Bill put up a link not so long ago that had several different tires for the D - Firestone, Cooper and Goodrich I remember and not that pricy. There was another brand too but the name slips me. They're around.

That tells me that any size in between should fit, no? I'm in a financial bind at the moment, but the car desperately needs new tires for safety. The factory size are becoming more expensive as time goes on (though I did find a fly by midnight brand, I believe it was Eldorado Tire who had them for $95 a pop.)
