Cool Re: Crosswind Tires: Your Impressions?

Thanks, me neither!

I enrolled in a protection plan for my recent car trade purchase, it includes tires, paint, upholstery, etc. The car is ten years old, in fine shape, but according to my local mechanic two of its tires exhibit signs of dry rot, and the front axle has two different models of the same brand! Acc. to them, "as-is" law exempts them from replacing the tires(car is > 7 years old).

Under this plan, they put on only the cheapest tires available: Eldorados, Crosswinds, etc. I do have the option to upgrade, which I will exercise.
