Re: RE71s - any experience?

KILLER tire that is totally underrated!  

I used to race on these tires and they were AWSOME!  Very neutral and
forgiving breakaway, with LOT'S of feedback.  The only drawback that I can
think of (and it's not one to me) is that the sidewalls are EXTREMLY stiff
amplifying bumps in the road and making the tires a real bitch to mount...
but that has the side affect of RAZOR sharp turn-in, some thing all our
Audi's need.

If you want more info on these tire's call Dana Farren at The Tire Rack and
tell him that I sent you, also ask him about the RE-71's on my 240-Z (He
mounted them and told me they were a bitch!)

One other thing about the RE-71's they arn't the size that you would expect,
My 225-50/15's really measured out to be 245-45/15's but that was'nt really a
problem for me.
