RE: Tires of different types

We have the XGT V4's on our Acura - suckful tire in the wet. It's OK in
the dry, but does seem to be unnecessarily noisy. As we live in the
Great Wet Northwest, I have even thought of switching them to something
else before they wear out. They're dangerously slick when it rains.
