Re: struts vs. tires

If the car (4000) is not a quattro, use 185/60 tires.  I have used
both on my coupe and have found that the 185 (stock) width is better
all around.  The 4000 non-quattro is significantly lighter than the
quattro or the 5 cylinder cars making the narrower tire a better
compromise.  Some 4000 FWD models came with the 185/60-14 tires stock.

I vote for the Boge turbo-gas shocks also.
