Re: LLR Tires for a 93 Ford Escort GT

Thanks all...anyone know about these? These are made by Michelin (reading that the mold is from another Michelin Tire). It's not LRR but the price tradeoff is there. A tiny bit taller and wider at 195/65/15. Far cheaper and the review say good in rain or snow. About $65 each along with $100 rebate from Discount Tire Direct leaves some jingle in my pockets. Just wish they were LRR but not bad for the price.

I don't know about that... Just because the tread mold is Michelin, doesn't mean the materials used are the same quality. There's some reason they didn't put the Michelin name on it.

Probably right...price is tempting for me though. Will probably just go for them and see how it goes. Thanks for the LRR schooling guys.
