Lame Tire Story...

So i got my 325, and i knew that one of the rear tires was kinda bald, but i got a rly good deal on the car so i was all good. Well, i noticed the tire was a bit low, so i put air in it and watched it. Well, in about a week it was near flat... so i looked in my spare compartment before and realized it had the same 17" sport rims that the car has, so i decided to just swap. Well then i realized that that kinda sucks since i have to take my sub box out of the trunk to get in there so i finally get the subs out, swap the tire, and its brand new it looked great tons of tread!

Well the next day i was washing the car, and i notice a bubble in the tire wall... T_T I went to discount tire and 150 bucks later i had to get a new tire...

I was hoping to find some used tires, but sadly Discount Tire didnt have any. Anyone have some suggestions for used tires, or if i should even bother?

Thanks!

Neon underglow lighting is the most important. Tires are at the bottom of the list along with seatbelts and brakes.
