My 83 scirocco came with P6. Good tires except they wear out fast. From
there I switched to Falken FK06U (or something like that). I found them
to be as good as P6 with longer wear and also cheaper. Note that
I don't do serious driving(auto cross, etc) with my car. Most of my driving
freeway and every one in a while I get a little carried away getting on and
off of them!
Anyways I am changing my tires on the 1988, 90 (from all season Yoko)
and will be switching to Falkens. Thru discount tires (mail order) I can
get these tires delivered for $225 which I think is a bargain.
I had similar tires installed on my wifes 535 last month and so far I don't
much difference between this and the P600 that used to be there...
