Have a 1995 Cirrus Lxi and getting ready to put a second set of tires on car. Trying to pick between Dunlop D60 A2 and Yokohama Avis H4/T4. Also found www.tiretrack.com on internet, how would you rate company & service.

Based on several reviews of the products the D60A2 would be your best value. Tire has some age on it from design, though still a good performer. Good handling H rated tire, capable of mileage projections and wet traction pretty consistant through the life of the tire. I must add I have not driven the Yoko's but a few miles, while I have worn out a set of D60A2's on a Mit. Diamante. Got about 44K out of them. Considerably better than the OE GY's. Tire Rack is a good company and delivers as promised (in most cases), I have purchased from them in the past. One consideration I would keep in mind is the mounting & balancing(service work). I have found increased labor charges to carry in tires for mounting & balancing at most dealers vs. buying the tires from them. Any adjustment or warranty work needed can also become complicated since the tires didn't come from the local dealer you eventualy have to go to if a problem arises. At the end of the day, unless they have a product or a size you can't find elsewhere, the freight & extra labor charges can easily negate any savings you receive on the tires
