This past Monday, I took the TR a local LBC facility to get the front
end alligned. Not bad for eyeballing it after rebuilding the front end
- toe-in off only .5 inch.
While there, we discussed tires for the car and they refered me to a
specific dealer in nearby Washington DC. Today I rang the the
distributor up and they claim that a tire manufacturer named Vredestein,
makes a blackwall size of 185/R15. (Inspection of the Vredestein web
site indicates that this tire actually has an 82% aspect ration,
The local distributor claims this tire is the correct profile as they
also claimed to be familiar with the original Goodyear/Michelin
Redlines. So, as DC is not just a 10 minute jaunt from here, I was
wondering whether anyone is familiar with this tire brand and/or has
seen it in this size. How's it handle/wear/look? Any comments?
