Re: RE71s - any experience?
What's all the hoopla on the RE-71'a and the Comp T/A's ???
I went through two sets of Yokohama AVS Intermediates on my old Scirocco 16V.
I got about 35K + miles out of each set. They were unbelieveable in the rain,
and stuck like glue in the dry. The autocrosser that I fianlly sold the car to
drooled when he saw the tires that were coming with the car.
I believe the Tire Rack is selling AVS I's 205/60 VR15s for $103 per.

Nope :-) . When I ordered them I specified V rated and asked for their best
deal. They said they were overstocked on them and wanted 78 +6 for S+H
I couldn't pass it up. You can talk to Sonny, ex 362.

I was considering them but the only deal I could get on them was for H rated
at $325 for 4 (same size, installed price, from WALMART can you believe)
anyway, I figured the RE71s could be exciting and make a difference.
