Which LRR Tires To get?
 
I hope for this thread to turn in to a guide for the ecomodder's prime tire choices.

Any chance you can pick up the insight tires, :p?

As a matter of fact I MAY be able to put my hands on some free Insight tires, the chances are slim, would have been much better when they were still in production. They are 14" and 14" wheels will not fit over my breaks. I can often times get 205 55 R16 Energy+ tires for free (usually 1 or 3 at a time) however then I would have to replace my 15" wheels with 16's

Anybody think it's worth running the larger size on my golf?

Anybody around here want a set? I can keep an eye out for them if they are of use to someone.

If you find some tires that fit a 15"X7" rim in the typical large sidewall that SUV have then yes I'd love a set :)
