Few months ago local walmart had them like 4 for $100. Now they don't stock them anymore. Are they hard to find these days?

Thanks in advance.

They sell 145/80r 12's at canadian tire, wintertrac's its about time for them anyway.

Pretty sure they had the same size in winters at wally mart aswell last time I was there $25 or so, just go to walmart and ask them to MTR a set from another store, if they say they cant theyre lying.

Local shops don't have them. I get the impression these days they only want to sell those big and ugly tires for big cars.

Thanks, I go beat on walmart again. I get the impression they just don't want to help.

Skinny tires are better on fuel economy I think. That's the onyl thing I care now.

the 155r12 is the EXACT same height as the 145/80/12 I even verified this with gps as t see how bad my speedo was off. Was DEAD on till my cars top speed of 92 mph (automatic).
