    I still have not replaced my tires. I maybe drive the D locally 50-100 miles a month tops. That is my excuse for putting it off. Replacing batteries in my Mustang has been keeping me busy. I am still looking for tires. Price is not a concern and the only thing I don't want is white letters or a name that sounds like a Ninja warrior. If someone who either has them or knows for sure they fit, feel free to add a link or links and I will go ahead and get them.

    General Altimax RT43 in 195/60r14 and 225/60r15. The best reviewed tires with longest warranty that come close to stock sizes. https://tirereviewsandmore.com/gener...-rt43-reviews/ https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...RatingsReviews

    I got them on my delorean and my mazda protege. Would have gotten them for my z3 too, but they dont have the proper size, so i went with a different model they had. Theyre modestly priced all around great tires with plain looks. Unless youre racing the delorean or going after a very specific look, these should be your first choice.

    I am also running these tires on the DeLorean, recommended by Toby. Great tires so far!

    I decided on the Cooper tires for my DeLorean last summer. They looked more like the original Goodyear tires. Didn't like the way the tread on the Generals wrapped around onto the sidewalls. Looked like snowtires to me.

    Which coopers? The CS3 touring also wrap around. Anyways, I didn't care about looks. Wet traction and warranty were my biggest deciding factors since I was using it as a daily driver.

    Everyone's got their own opinion on tires.

    Club(s):   (DMA)

    After a lot of searching I found the following combination;

    Fronts 195/60/R/14 Michelin MXV3-A

    Rears 235/60D/15 BF Goodrich Radial T/A

    While I am not crazy about having to use different manufacturer's tires front and rear, they are the correct sizes. Does anyone have any comments?
