Steve, your sig cracks me up.

"I live my life a quarter mile at a time. For those few minutes, I'm free."

So it takes you a few minutes to go a quarter mile? :P

I have Pirelli P6 Four Seasons on the Regal, which are the factory Audi A4 Sport tires on Audi A4 rims. Can't say I had any problems with handling this winter, or in any wet conditions. Excellent tires overall, but a little bit pricey. I probably won't be replacing them with the same thing when the time comes to replace them.

So if you find a tire for $150 shipped (per tire, on a set of 4) on some random website that nobody uses, they will knock that down at least $5 a tire. I did that with the Kumho ASX'* on the Bonneville and they came out cheaper than tirerack.com by $12 per tire.

Speaking of tires, Kumho ASX'* in my tire size are excellent tires. I'm a sore hater of Goodyear. I've had way too many shitty goodyear tires, and the Eagle RSA'* that the GXP'* come with are by far the biggest pieces of crap I've ever used. $270 a tire and they are flat out terrible in wet, snow, and ice traction, and they're practically bald by 40k to boot! I've known some people who didn't get past 30k on a brand new set.
Those Kumho'* are what I was thinking about gettting when I need new tread.
