I'm loving this new SC MR2. Covered up the faded striping with carbon fiber-looking molding the same width, and looks great on the silver/grey.

What I don't love are the wheels. They look terrible and I'm pretty sure the tires are either out of round, flat spots, need balancing, something. I had intended to purchase new (or really good craigslist) in the spring.

But would I catch any good sales now? Spring means tax return, but I could card them now if the deals are better. (I'm willing to local like Pep Boys or Tire Rack to my favorite shop 2.3 miles away.)

Well, you just missed a big sale at discount tire last month. Seems like they come along 3-4 times per year. Keep an eye on tire rack. Sometimes they clearance old summer tires about now.
