Default Need cheap tires

Tire Details - America's Tire Those OK? I'm thinking they'll be decent for a year or two. I want to put on these:
Versado LX II | Toyo Tires

But I can't afford it yet, and my tires are getting low...

With tires you get what you pay for.

I figure, just making sure these aren't 10k mile tires with no sidewall

I've owned a few sets of General tires and have been very pleased.

Versado is ok, but honestly I would check like a Firestone Firehawk A/S or a BFG SS A/S, both are excellent long lasting, and only slightly more then a no name. My first choice for that car would be a Bridgestone RE97AS amazing tire all around. The Bridgestone S04 would be nice also, but a all season just seems so much more fitting to the heart and soul of what the car was designed to do. Really doesn't matter you'll screw up the air pressure and ruin them anyway.

Just found out how paranoid I am. Les Schwab told me I should be perfectly find. Awesome! Not I can paint everything how I originally planned! Also, the Proxes 4+ looks tasty.

They'll be fine as long as you aren't looking for something to use in winter weather.
