: Strange... the ones that came on my car were 8080s. When I asked the dealer about that, I was told that all their 98s came with the 8080s.
: Maybe it was becasue it was late in the year (august). Also my 98 came with the three spoke steering, did yours come with that too?
: If not, maybe it was just a shift in production or something halfway thru the year.
You lucky guy! :-) My 5/98 build date car did not come with the three-spoke steering wheel. I would have loved to have gotten that, but I guess I must have just missed it. I assume they started mounting Dunlops around the same time, though it seems like they mount whichever tire (Michelin Pilot Sport or Dunlop 8080E) they happen to have handy. :-)
I've heard of people having problems with the build quality of the Dunlops. Have you had any problems?
