Thanks for the tip Dan. A few moments ago I ordered a set of these
tires via the Tire Rack banner on the site. Actually my
current tires (Firestone SZ50es) look like they won't go much beyond
next month's WG track event, so I'll be needing new summer tires very
soon. I really like those Firestones but--at less than 1/2 the
price--the AVS Intermediates ought to be worth a try.

P.S. As I write this, the phone rings. It's a guy from Tire Rack
saying "Do you I really want the 225/60-15 size for your 1991 Audi."

"Yep, I'm running that size right now," I replied.
