In Reply to: Time for new tires, suggestions? posted by Alan on October 29, 2000 at 01:50:57:

I have the 205/65/15 Michelin Energy for the 15s and they are low noise,good grip in wet and dry.Am currently on the 17s Continental ContiSportContact 235/45/17 and handling is great with a bit of road rumble at low speeds but excellent at hi speeds compared to the 15s.Much better tracking capabilities in excess of 180km/h.

Due for a new set of 15s soon. Currently I have Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus. I find them to be ery agreeable with low noise, decent handling and so forth. I'd love to get Pirelli P7000 Supersport All seasons but they come only in 16 and i just dont have the cash for some new rims (although a set of Borbet Cs would be great!). Any one have any suggestions? The Energys seem to be one of the more expensive tires out there (for its class - Touring). Anyone have a real positive experience? My car is a year round daily driver so wet performance and a rare snowy drive are to be considered. THANKS!
