Cool Blaze through craptastic tires or double for good?

Dilemma.. I can get some Cooper zeon 2xs rear tires for 100 bucks a pop and happily blaze through them without a care.. or 200 apiece for some Continental Extreme contacts..
Hurting for money at the moment.. thoughts?

that was my bad.. after some research the retailer may turn out to be shady.. about 50% chance I'll get them and 50% i'll have to get amex to get my money back.
