I have 74 coupe, 79 coupe, 88 roadster and have had excellent luck with DUNLOP QUALIFER. Just by accident I ended up with DUNLOPS on 74 and as soon as I left garage I noticed all the drive line noise that I thought was related to u-joints, rear axle bearings was from the previous tires. The car rolled like hell, and when you backed off the gas the tires had much less rolling resistance. At first they felt like 4 big ballons but within a day or two I adjusted to the ride and loved em since. The tires always wore true and require little rebalancing. I have been told this is true for the tires manufactured in Japan and the U.S. or other versions can be less reliable. My second choice would be BF GOODRICH just cuz they are cheap and give pretty good wear. I don't really look for tires for handling, if you want a corvette to handle buy a c4 or c5 corvette.
