    I got a flat tire on a Toyota sedan. The original equipment tires were all fairly expensive Michelin tires. Will I hurt anything if my new tire comes from a different maker? I can get a similar quality name brand tire (steel belted, 60k, energy saver) for $40 to $60 less and my budget is extremely tight. I mean ramen noodle tight. Very little available credit. I'll be paying cash. The car is used for big city commuting with freeway speeds up to 80, but typically much slower. I'd love to get $140 tire, but I can afford an $80 on sale tire.

    you CAN run a different tire, but i wouldn't think it's advisable. those other 3 tires offer their own level of grip and the 4th will not match that exactly. you CAN, but just be aware of that.
    In life you have to do a lot of things you don't ****ing want to do. Many times, that's what the **** life is... one vile ****ing task after another. But don't get aggravated.... then the enemy has you by the short-hairs.
