    New Tires?

    I'm thinking about putting new sneakers on my 88. Does anyone have any suggestions? The Michelins that I have on the car now have good tread depth but are showing some dry rot due to age. Leaning towards a Cooper but am open to anything but preferably domestic.

    When I had the stock tires, I ran the Goodyears and they were really great tires, especially on the highway. I don't get snow, but they were awesome in the rain.

    Peace,

    Chief

    Thanks Chief. I'm considering some Continetals. They have a decent speed rating an dthey look good.

    I'm not aquainted with any Allante owners who have ran Continentals on their car. But a friend of mine, who owns a 5 Series BMW, has gone through two sets of them and was very disappointed about how quickly they wear. That's the only personal knowledge I have about them, but if you go to Tire Rack you can read lots of testimonials on most of the popular brands.

    I'm with Chief, Tire rack is a great place to read tire comparisions. Pot of coffee and an hour of reading. can't be beat. Based on what I read on tire rack, I bought Kuhmos as they were described as having a nice balance of performance and low road noise. Checked Sleazebay and happened to find a set for less than $300 delivered in two days.

    Three summer seasons (Chief do wish I didn't see snow) at 3-4000 miles per and I couldn't be happier with performance and negligible tire wear.

    Good hunting!

    'No snow' not only makes it easier to keep your car clean, but it also provides you with a national base of cold state buyers when you sell it. The last car I sold was to a guy from Cleveland who flew out, paid cash, and drove it home. "I just love the internet!"

    I'm running Michelin Pilot Exaltos. They have been fine.

    Good choice, I've probably bought a half dozen sets of Michelin's on different cars and I never had any problems associated with them.
