Dan mentioned that he has a peppy 227 hp Audi. I have had the
experience of pacing Audis through all weather conditions on
mountanous roads over the years and Dan is right they are peppy
and they corner extremely well. I have been driving Corvettes for
over 20 years now and when I look in my rear view mirror there aren't
very many cars that can stay in view. The Audi does well and so does
the Subaru. When taking 25 mph turns at 60, I can do it with ease and
the Audi stays in there pretty good. I have put 60,000 miles on Michelin
VR rated tires several times. The Goodyear Eagle on the other hand lasted
for 25000 miles and that was stretching it. Dan also mentioned that he didn't
want Z rated tires (which I currently have on my Vette)because he didn't drive
in triple digits. I like to get out in the desert and set my cruise control
at 100mph and sit back for an hour or two in 100 deg. heat.The best alternative
to a Z is a VR. If you want long life out of the tire then go a Michelin.
Most people can't believe that 60,000 miles can be gotten out of a Michelin
VR rated tire but it's a fact. Also Dan mentioned directional tires. I have had
both directional tires and wheels. It's hardly noticeable because the rotation is front to rear same side. Unless you have different sized tires in the rear then
it gets a bit more complicated.
