Re: More Tire Gossip
I'm somewhat surprised by the derision heaped upon the lowly P6! I've had
them on several 4000Qs and always thought they were good all-around
affordable tahrs. OK in the dry, predictable, acceptable in the wet (with
tread) and not too bad at all in the sno (with tread & on a Quattro), quiet,
smooth and long-wearing. Pretty much everything you would want in an
all-round grits-gettin' tahr. Will the P6s 'perform' notably worse on the
5000TQ Vs on the much lighter and smaller 4KQ? If they would perform about
the same I'd be perfectly happy with them and knowing that I'll be able to
afford another new set sooner Vs having to eke 'just a few more miles' out
of an expensive hi-perf $et o' tahrs.
