The alignment in my car is off. The mechanic cannot fix it without replacing a rod at the back and a tie rod at the front. They have given me a quote of ~$500 to fix this. I just bought new Kumho tires 3 months back and dont plan to put any more money in the car. Need to sell it in a year or so.
If I rotate the tires every 2-3 months, drive about 10K miles/yr in the suburbs, and continue with the bad alignment, how soon can I expect the tires to get worn out? I drive carefully, but we do get a lot of snow.
Can I get atleast 15K miles on them? The tires have a warranty of 60K but I am not interested in shelling out another $500 to protect my warranty.
