If you paid $230 for all four tires, you got a deal! I had to buy two tires last month and it cost me that much by the time they added tax and all the recycling and hazardous emissions fees. I got the same exact tires as the last time from the same exact place. The per tire price jumped from $59 to $85 in just four or five years. Apparently, the price of oil increases the price of rubber.

I quit shopping for swaps a couple years ago. No brad swaps, no recipe swaps, no ribbon swaps. Sure, it's fun. But for me it just wasn't worth it. It didn't take long for me to realize that my taste isn't the same as others. I ended up mostly with stuff I wouldn't use. I figured I'd be better off spending the money buying stuff for ME, ME, ME. LOL
