I'm traveling and it seems I overestimated the remaining tread life on my tires. Due to how remote I am this seems like the best option, anyone give these tires a try? I figure they can't be any worse than the stockers which really haven't been that bad...

Thanks all!

"Fuel Saver" tires might have a hard tread compound. Not the best to have in wet and slippery conditions.

Goto Tirerack.com, and find the link that lists their approved installers. Find the one closest to you - if there is one within 25 or 50 miles, you could have the tires shipped there. Much better alternative than riding on crap tires for 5 years.

They're "meh". Decent for the money. And Goodyear builds the rip offs specifically for Walmart and intentionally cheapens them. You can find something better for not much more.

Get a set of Dunlop Signature IIs at least.

Thanks for the input. It's not about money, just what's available and trying not to disturb my cabin time more than necessary...not much in the way of tire shops around here and this is pretty much my last stop before the 2000 mile drive home. Thanks again for the feedback.

Ps
Really surprised I even have Internet phone access to post this...weird.

Walmart should have SOMETHING nicer, though. I would hope anyway.

Research tires in your price comfort zone at Tire Rack, then drive to the nearest larger city on your trip home and buy them en-route. You can pick out a Discount Tire or similar chain store and buy them in advance, and arrange for them to be there when you come through town. Minimal hassles and down time this way.....

Are the current ones so bad you can't live with them until then?
