I'm not a big eagle gt fan myself. On what car are these going on?
Bob Myers and I just purchased the RE71V for our 200Qs . They're
a blast, Tire Rack was running a great special and the performance
upgrade was noticeable immediately. But . . . these tires fall into the
ultra-performance category and will wear out faster - twice as fast as
RE900 (UTQG 160AA vs 320AB) Unfortunately, the RE900s are rated only
B temperature. Perhaps a set of BF Goodrich Comp T/As (H or V)
would be an excellent choice (lots of good reviews here on this mailing
list). Try Tire Rack and see if they're running any specials.
