Well apparently I was driving on this tire(one with pics below) for the past couple of months along with my other sh*tty tires. This specific tire was the rear passenger side, 2 others were completely bald and the last tire was pretty bad but had some outer tread. My old tires were Falken GRB's, and needless to say I got them changed today and went with a set of Falken Ziex 225/40/18 balanced and mounted with four wheel alignment and the ride difference is incredible(you'd think). My car is extremely, extremely quiet when driving, going over bumps, etc. now. Pictures of the 1 very, very, bad/bald tire are as follow. The funny thing was as soon as I got home (happened/noticed it Friday afternoon) and parked the car in the garage the tire deflated, lucky me.

Yep, wore through the outer cords into the belts.

I'm surprised it didn't blow while I was driving, that is just horrible.

I knew they were bald, but I never actually inspected them all around, had I noticed it was as bad as it was then the change would have been immediate. I had originally planned on getting new tires next Saturday but for obvious reasons got them yesterday.

Yeah basically, I got every penny worth out of those damn tires.

Jeff and Raphael I was very lucky, would have been ever worse if it had blown out on me on the freeway, my cousin still has my jack at his house from the time I painted his calipers, I would have been more than sh!t outta luck.
