	Just to add to my previous posts about tires for the 5KCSTQ, I 
might add that I have had a set of RE71Rs on the RX7.  They were 
excellent handling tires, and good in the rain, even shaved, but 
their overall level of "stick" was inferior to the Yokohama and BFG 
autoX tires that I have also used.  I imagine RE71 street tires 
would be among the best available.
