[DML] BF Goodrich tires

  I didn't like them.  Followed the DeLorean owners handbook 
recommendation of 23 psi front and 30 psi rear for normal driving.  
Drove 700 miles in a month and got rid of them.  Not much selection 
to choose from for a DeLorean (if you find it absolutely necessary 
to ride on the same make and model of tire front and rear) 195/60R14 
front and 235/60R15 rear.
  The level of noise and vibration rises exponentially on any road 
surface.  The tires let you know your speed by not only the noise 
level but also the vibration through the seat belt buckle attached 
to the mild steel epoxy coated backbone frame running down the 
middle of the D.  Inside the space cabin it sounded like I put large 
knobby truck tires on the rear.  The noise drowned out the music so 
in order to hear it at freeway speeds you had to turn it up.  Only 
drove them for 700 miles in September and October and wanted 
something sooner rather than later.  Ordered Dunlop GT Qualifier T 
and they are much better.  Going to stick with the Dunlops until I 
wear them out!
