RE: A good Rain Tire?
In a month or two, I am replacing the tires on my stock 86 4kcsq. What
would be the best _rain_ tire? Size would be 195/60/HR 14.
 I happen to be a tire salesperson with Tire America in Ohio. Personally I drive on the Dunlop D60 A2s. The Dunlop's handle themselves very well in all weather. What makes a tire good in the rain are the channels in the tire. The fastest way for water to vacate your tire is in a straight line. Tires with more distinct "aqua" grooves do better in the rain. Again, the tires that I will recommend to you and others are only the ones that I sell and have familiarity with. The Yokohama S305 is probably the next step up from the D60 A2. It uses more aqua channels and has a great ride. The top of the line would be a Mich. MXV4, great all around tire but quite pricey.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop a note back.
