I'll second what Thomas has said....I put the RE71 on my 82 Toyota
Supra. The car handled really well in dry conditions. In wet not as well and in snow...
forget it I had to be literally "pushed" to work by my friend in his 71 Dodge Charger
I just was not getting any traction. The tire would just spin and not grab. The compounds
the RR71 are made of just don't remain soft in below freezing weather. Its clearly not
an all season tire and has no "sipes" in the tread making it only a "summer" tire. I am
looking forward to putting the Firehawk SZ50 on my Camaro IROC-Z very soon. Being I work
at Firstone I'll get them for nearly 10% above store cost. So I feel its a worthwhile
purchase. My RE71's have nearly 20,000 miles on them and I anticipate another 20,000
(rotate them every 6,000 mile)!!!
