In Reply to: What tires do you use? posted by Ted on March 05, 2000 at 09:43:37:
I have a set of Bridgstone Potenza S-O2's on my car. I have had them for about 20k miles and they seem to be holding up quite well. They are an all around awesome tire. They have great grip in both rain and dry with minimal tread noise. I don't drive the car on snow and never would with these types of tires. I have always thougth that it was better to get dedicated snow tires/wheels and save the big meats for the summer.
: As you know, no matter how could you car is, the tires are still the ones that hug the road and cheapo tires dont jive with an expensive body. I recently replaced my favorite BF Goodrich Touring T/A HR4 ( rated 380AA) with BF Goodrich Comp T/A HR4 ( rated 360AA ), and I could feel an improvement in the handling right away. The Comps are listed under BF Goodrich's " Performance Tires" category. Reviews say that the Comps are great in handling and stopping, in rainy conditions, but they are not so good on snowy surfaces. Someone said that they don't last as long as they should, considering that they are rated a 360. I'll know after some time, I reckon.
