I dunno about Dunlop's entire line of tires, but let me tell you my sad experience with 13" D60A2's on my 1985 RX7. I bought them because Goodyear discontinued my size (13") in an all-season performance tire. The D60A2's were absolutely dangerous in any amount of snow. Finally one day I couldn't get home in something les than 1/2" of snow. So I slid into a Goodyear store and bought their cheapest tires (less than $200 the set). They were great!

I still use the D60A2's in spring/summer/fall. They are good in the dry, though nothing like the German Goodyear high performance tires I had before (an unfair comparison, I know).

Now the RX7 is driven only in summer, so I can't wait to wear out the Dunlops so I can re-shoe with some serious performance tires. Can anybody with RX7 experience advise me on some good tires?

Also: Do I hear an offer for four sad D60A2's and some cheap Goodyear backups?
