Well, it looks as though I will be keeping the Audi 90.
The bank thinks we can swing both the house and the car, so my
wife is happy. :) Good, it gives me ammo for getting my 90 quattro
in a year or so :):)
Since we are keeping it I will need to do some tuneup work and a
couple of other things I've been putting off. One of those is
tires. It has some Kelly Charger HRs now, but they are not going to
last much longer. Also, I keep hearing a 'kathump, kathump' noise at
low speed I hope are bad tires and not bearings.
Anyway... I am thinking of switching my Pirelli snows to the
stock alloys and mounting new tires on the MSW rims I bought
last winter, unless someone wants to buy them. I'm not looking
for expensive rubber, but durable, well performing in 3 season,
and cheap. Candidates are:
- Dunlop D60/A2: have em on the Jetta, love them.
- Yoko A509 or similar: have heard good reports but they don't
One I had not considered: Pirelli P6. For some reason these are
dirt cheap now. Even the local places are advertising 195/60HR14s
at around $60, mounted. I'm tempted to go with these - how
are they? I hated my P500s I had on the Jetta.
