RE: [DML] Re: Best white letter tires to buy?

I have the coopers on mine... they are just fine for me... the speed rating
is a bit low for me but I wanted matching...

I've seen Coopers that just aren't round even when new. They will get worse
as they age. 

Drive the car around a bit to warm things up (and get rid of flat spots from
sitting) and then lift the tire off the ground and spin it while watching
the space between the tire and the ground. Out-of-roundness bad enough to
feel will show up somewhat obviously. 

Also look for a bent wheel rim. 

Michelin Pilot Exalto are my current preference. Rears have to be 225-60-15.
