Al: I find that I and my esteemed list-colleague Huw are in disagreement...
Huw: > My favorite tires of all time...Falken 06C's (205-60-15)
Al: Mr. Huw, how interesting. Falkens found exceedingly average. total
Many of the local sports car club here at Texas A&M run Falkens, mainly
because their dry traction is good and they're CHEEEEP at Western Auto....
(Huw disparages Dunlops)
I replaced the Falkens with Dunlops (for the same money) and like them much
For the Audi, I personally like the BFG Comp/TA in the H-series. These are
rated to 130 mph, which - let's face it - is FAR more than we actually need
. They have much superior traction to the OEM Eagle GA's or NCT's which we
inherited on both our Audis; they ride smoother; and they last MUCH longer.
They also have the great virtue of being available for about $80 per
We can still be friends, right, Huw????
Huw kneels before the altar and sacrifices a young Jetta
Of course, Al , I wasn't really trying to pose as the tire god, just sharing
my perosnal experience. In fact that's why I noted the fact that I run
"cheap" tires - obviously I'm not getting the nth level of quality.
Appreciate your tout of the BFG, I'll have to try a set of them....
And what's this tire life thing? Amazing how a 60- or 75,000 mile radial
can go so little distance! Do you think it has anything to do with how I
drive? (I go through six tires a year or so, @ 20,000 miles)
