In Reply to: Tires for Eagle Talon Tsi AWD--Advice, anyone? posted by Dave on May 08, 1998 at 09:35:33:
If you want to get the most out of your car (and since you already have snows)STAY AWAY FROM ALL SEASONS. Best values that I can find are at the Tire Rack, pick up a Car&Driver or visit them on the net. I'm was going to pick up a set of Sumitomos, but they're no longer listed as being on special. Instead I'll pick up a set of Dunlop SP8000s or D40M2s.
Both tires are bargains at 95ish and 85ish each + shipping. Both work far better than anything that ever came stock on this car. Beware of wear, both will disappear substantially quicker than RS-As or most other all-season tires. However, if you're running snows for part of the year this will lessen the blow.
If you havn't done so already do yourself a big favour and check out dsm.org for a mind blowing wealth of Talon information.
90 TSi FWD soon to be getting new Dunlops.
Buying Dunlops cause I'm getting a good deal
