Re: CQ Tahrs

    If you truly are thrifty, go for the Michelin MXV4 Energy tires. I just
put a set of these on my '91 200q this summer. They ride smooth, handle in a
reasonably crisp fashion, and actually DELIVERED a 10% increase in gas
mileage just like the ad said! I know, I know, its hard to believe an ad
held a grain of truth, but I continuously track my mileage and the increase
is there!
