I have used up three sets of Bridgestone RE71s (195/60R14) on my '88 90Q.
They lasted 20,000 to 40,000 miles per set (depending on driving style), and
provided excellent traction wet or dry. They provide good turn in, and
(relatively) gentle breakaway characteristics. They are dismall in snow
however. And, they are very soft. Agressive driving will wear them down
quickly. I also had the OEM Continentals, and Pirelli P600s. The RE71s
were supperior to either of the other sets (Both wet and dry), and lasted at
least as long.
I strongly recommend them, if you are looking for an excellent wet/dry
weather tire. Plus, they are cheap now (I think $75 per tire, or so).
Okay, maybe not cheap, but quite a steal, IMHO.
