RE: [DMCForum] Re: Tire Selection



Another owner found a set of the Michelin Pilots through a local tire store.
He had to do some calling around but found a matched set.  You can also
check www.TireRack.com for them.

I have the Coopers on my car.  They sit very still very well.  They really
grip the garage floor. :)

Lots of opinions on tires. And I do mean LOTS! Probably more 
disagreements on tires, than oil.

I reccomend Cooper Cobra GT's. They match, and are T rated. I don't 
know of any other owners that have installed them, and have had a 
complaint about them. And after researching tires, they fit my needs 
perfectly.

50K mile warranty. They're rated @ 440 on wear, and have an "A" 
rating on traction. But most of all, they've got a "B" rating on 
Temperature. I personally prefer the lower rating on temp, because 
in my experience, tires remain much more sticky. ESPECIALLY these 
ones! My last tires were V rated Yokohamas, and they were horrible 
for traction. I slid all over the place in the Vegas rains.

That's my 2 cents on the subject, and what I would choose. However, 
if you would prefer the Michelins, I'm sure that you could get them 
in the US. Check eBay too. You'd be surprised. I've even seen Yoko 
AVS's for sale on there too. Brand new ones at that.
