Default Saving original tires

My 94 has the original tires. The rears are shot but the fronts still have a lot of tread. I am going to replace them all, but I was wondering if it is really worth it to save the originals?

Thanks!

Look closely between the ribs for cracks. When I replaced mine (originals) this summer, I was going to save them too. Until I noticed the cracks there.

at the time these car were produced...goodyear had a policy on their eagle tires that for the LIFE of the tire (until 2/32) if the tire cracked / dryrotted they would replace them / prorate them. Now I think its 10 years. BUT this WAS the warranty in the mide 90's. You might go to a CORPORATE owned store not a franchised goodyear . . .you wont get anything there...and / or call their 1800# and see what happens. PS I didnt stay at a Holiday Inn last night I worked for goodyear.
