Is the Conti stock rubber good, or am I

missing something. What is the preffered 17" rubber, Yokohama, Perelli,... or Firestone ! (Just kidding on the Firestone)

(I installed clears last week, time for new pics.)

the Contis are a big as far as I was concerned - they had porr grip and were noisy to boot. Went from those to the Toyo T1Ss and although those have good grip I find that after the breakin they are too noisy for my taste.

Everyone here seems happy with the Bridgstone S03s and I'm going to give those a try myself..

The BMW exec that approved the use of Conti's should go back and work for YUGO. Those tires are HORRIBLE!! . You can pretty much buy ANY other brand, and you are better off than the Contis. Look into the Bridgestone S-03's. Not overly priced, but great ratings and reviews.
