Around here if you don't have tread you don't pass inspection.

That said I usually have gotten new tires before they have been worn out. Quite un-eco, mostly in the name of safety.

If I wanted to be truly eco I would not own a car, work outside my house or be on the internet.

In my estimation many here are mileage bandits rather than trying to live with a minimum footprint. I am okay with that. It rather defines our culture.

Tires are a great way to improve economy but upgrades can't cost more than they save. They are not like buying a car they use themselves up in only a few years.

I would like to see data on which tires are the best.

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe.

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”
