I use Michielin MXV-4 S8s. Def will leave tracks when I break it lose, but as for handling and feel, nothing but smooth and solid. Under the Category " Performance Luxury", basically a calling for bonnevilles and auroras.

Goodyear Regatta 2s, absolute shi*t I wouldn't reccomend them to anyone.

Good thing I get new tyres in the spring.

Some Douglas Wal-mart brand tire. I believe the Douglas is made by goodyear. The tires were on the car when I bought it. They rode extremely nice!

95 had Mastercraft cheapies..couldn't stand them. 97 had nearly balds.

95'* went to the 97. Burned them off whenever I could because they had to be replaced before winter.

Michelin XG Pilots now.. Great traction in dry and wet so far. Big puddles don't phase them at all. I'm pretty demanding from a tire.

From the experiences we have had with the Pirellis on the Bonnie they are very good in the snow. We've never gotten stuck in the winter with it, it goes through everything. They are definately a very good all season tire IMO.
