RE: P700Z any good?
As anyone will tell you, there are tons, and I do mean tons, of opinions
on tires. I have owned cheap Pirellis some years ago (P6's), and they
were not very responsive. (The V rated 700's are not the same as the Z
rated ones!!!) The P6000s I replaced them with, on the other hand, were
a tad better. I have also owned Dunlop 4000's, which were again
average, but wore out quite quickly. The Potenza RE71's I owned were
some of the best tires I ever had the experience to own. Try Tire
Rack's online service at www.tirerack.com for actual test result
comparisons between similar rubber. Just from a quick perusal of the
205/50 15 tires in their EC ad, I would say the Yoko A509 are a good
bargain at $94, as well as the RE71s that you mentioned. BUT, you know
what I'd do??? (Someone's going to disagree w/me on this) Call up
Discount Tire Direct, and order the Nitto NT-450s from them. At $74 a
tire, I think it's your best bet! These tires look good, and from what
I hear, offer great bang for the buck in terms of handling and
treadwear. And at under $300 for all 4......whoa!
