Looking at some temporary tires (2) for a car that needs new fronts just to fit for the time being until new wheels are purchased.

215/45/16. Very odd size. Going on a 16x7.5 wheel. No other size will fit the car.

I was able to locate two tires I can get cheaply in this size. Radar RPX-800 and Accelera Alpha.

Anyone have any experience with either brand or tire? These are temporary. Both sound like Chineseum, but im hoping one will be serviceable for several months.

No direct experience but looking at the tires and their specs I would lean toward the Radar RPX-800

They are summer tires though so not so good this time of year in VA.



yup

Some places call it an all season and others don't. And it has a 520 treadwear rating. Haha.

These would not be driven in snow at all.

If they're only temporary until you get better tires in a few months, just pick whichever is the better price smile
