Cheap front tyre recommendations

I need a set a pair of front tyres urgently. What would you recommend as a cheap tyre?

I'm looking to buy locally as I need them tomorrow or on Sunday.

Thanks!

If you're after cheap, call around a few places and see if they have any used tyres that match your size.
Often there will be tyres that are left behind from someone who has upgraded but are still roadworthy.
It's the cheapest option, unless someone else has a set forsale here.

thanks guys! I was going to buy new tyres.

And you're a champ GJA003, appreciate the offer man.

And tempe tyres is closed tomorrow

I am driving a fair distance around new years and don't want to be risking it so I need a set asap.

Do you have any recommendations on brands or sets that are ok? KUMHOS?

anyway as mentioned see what 2nd hand tyres are left behind, otherwise some KU31s will be fine for a cheap tyre in the mean time.

Thanks guys.. I don't know if you're joking about the KU31 or not. I ended up parking my car over new years instead. Didn't want to risk it. I'm gonna look into the KU31 or KU39s.

Thanks!
