berlin@attglobal.netI am looking for all season recommendations for my '91 GTi. Currently on Kuhmo Supra 712 ECSTA but they turned out to be too big (and scrape the wheel wells) even though I replaced the same size Cooper Lifeliner II

I have a sport suspension package and am looking for 205 50/15 which I think will be a better fit.

I have been looking at Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Asym. but they are a bit pricey. My VW mechanic is recommending Hercules G3000V or HP4000 but have no experience with Hercules. Other Store recommendations have been Yokohama Parada (or Marada??)

I live in NYC (many potholes) and like to drive to the Mntns in winter so, should have decent winter traction.

Any help is appreciated!!!!


KruizerI drive a CRX with an integra type R engine in it and I also use the 205/50 15 size because I find it provides the best combination of handling, stability, and uneven road surface absorption. I would go for the Hercules tires, which is what I got on my car. They are cheap, really tough tires that last pretty good considering my driving. You can really take a turn nicely on these tires and break away is predictable so you won't suddenly wipe out without realizing what happened. In the rain they can hold the road pretty good. I used to have a set of bridgestones which were a little better on wet corners, but they cost double what my hercules tires cost. Acceleration grip is great for stop light drag races.
