Re: 250-mile report: Dunlop D60A2

I agree with almost all that both of you have said, with one exception:
these tires seem to be harder to balance than others.  I've got 215/60-15 on
my 15x7.5 bbs (oe) wheels.  there is significantly more weight taped to my
wheels than with the Michelins I was running before, but there's still a
slight shimmy/rumble in the steering wheel.  the guy mounting/balancing them
said these tires tend to be harder to balance, more so than their pricier
(and non-all season) D40M2 or SP8000 tires.  possibly it's the older non-jlb
design of my tires (9 months old now).  so far, i've got about 6k miles on
them, but didn't really "test" them in the snow last winter.
