re: tyres on the 100

I finally washed the wheels on my car at the weekend. Then I noticed the 
tyres. It's a 100E 2.8 auto, so front wheel drive, not a quattro. In 
september 94 I fitted four new Pirellis at enormous expense. The fronts 
are now pretty bald, illegal, according to the tyre garage. I mean, I 
drive the thing exuberantly, but not wheel spinningly so: I've always 
believed in the subtle art of blowing the doors of lesser machinery, not 
screeching off at the lights. It is an auto, I know. After five months, 
should I be seeing this kind of wear, because the backs are brand new 
looking (yeah, I know there's no drive going to them, but still). 

	So, Is this normal? And 2, what new tyres would you recommend? 
Good all rounders, good for quick, vigorous driving, but also for 
luxurious cruising. It's got the 15" alloys, 215 60 ZR 15
