Your Question was:(quote) I am not really looking for a true performance
tire, but something that offers good handling & a nice ride in mostly dry
conditions, and I am
looking to spend somewhere in the $50 price range per tire. Comments,
The Answer: Look in 1984 or '85 because now a good all-purpose radial with
any longevity at all will run you at least $75.00 to $100.00 ea. Especially
the two brands you specified, Dunlop and Pirelli. A good off brand, but not
as well known is the Cooper Tire I've had a lot of luck with them. Still
you're looking at a tire that'll probably still run you $65-$75 ea. That's
really not a lot money in terms of safety, performance and long life. P.S.
check out the warranty. If it says it will prorate the existing tire in case
of a "road hazard or curb damage" ask if you can upgrade it to something with
more extensive coverage"
