15 year old is getting pretty stale. It's generally a good idea to toss street tires after 6 years.

Depending on how serious you want to get into this, you could either buy the kick-butt awesome tires that everybody raves about, or just buy whatever is cheap and enjoy learning to drive. Or something in-between.

I am running the cheapest tires I could find on my car for both street and autocross. I ~have~ brought race tires to events and swapped tires, but I'm old and rusty and don't care as much any more.

Yep when i saw the tires were that old i put it on my list of something to replace. Yeah i'll spending a little bit to ensure my car is safe and ready to hit the course. Might mean having to skip autocross this year, oh well.
