[DML] Re: Recommended Tires

To the DML,

This is in regards to replacing tires.  I was going to ask the same 
thing two months ago.  Instead of asking I had installed BF Goodrich 
Radial TA's front 195/60R14 and rear 235/60R15.  I absolutely hate 
the rear tires.  They're noisy at any speed above 25 mph (42 kmh).  
The noise increases exponentially at higher speeds.  It gets so 
noisy at freeway speeds it drowns out the radio and I have to turn 
up the volume.
At www.tirerack.com you can even read reviews after you have 
selected the proper make and model of tire you like.  Someone from 
Casa Grande, AZ driving a 1982 DeLorean wrote a review how they 
liked the Dunlop GT Qualifier (Performance All-Season).  Review 
submitted 2004-10-01.
My order for the Dunlop GT Qualifier T has come in and Monday, 
October 16th I'm having them installed.  Not sure what the Discount 
Tire store will give me for the good used, just 2 months and 700 
miles BF Goodrich Radial TA that I bought from them.
Also, read the reviews about the BF Goodrich Radial TA at 
www.tirerack.com and you will see how many people are unhappy about 
these tires being too noisy.
Some day I too will write a review about the BF Goodrich Radial TA 
and Dunlop GT Qualifier T.
When I bought my D in 2001 it had four good Bridgestone Potenza 
tires on it.  The 235/60R15 rears are no longer made so I wanted to 
come up with a set that would fit both the front and rear.  Wish the 
rear Potenza's were still made.  Then my choice would have been easy 
and I would have bought four new Potenzas.
