For the price of four new 12s, you can probably get 4 new 13s and rims to go with them

Do a 13" upgrade, unless you are a trueist. I cannot believe how much money 13" tires cost. I passed through the auto section of wallyworld the other day and 13" EXTRATRAC 2 are $42 each now. I remember a couple of years ago I got the same tires for $25 each. Dang. Used to get new shoes for a little over a hundred bucks and now its over two hundred. ARGH

12" tires will cost you a lot more than 13's when the time comes. Heck for the price of 13's you could buy new hub caps. :D

I'm with you now Joe. I'd stick with 12s if you have nice hubcaps.

Try these guys. After the $50 discount and $30 gift card they should be about $148 shipped.

I stayed with 12 inch tires and found them at tires-easy.com. :thumb I bot 4 Yokohama's for about $200, shipped to my door. Your mechanic should be able to mount and balance for $10 a tire. They don't look like they have the yokohama's anymore but they have a selection.

Tires-easy

Good luck!
