I searched the P6 rating for you. It seems many people share the same feeling below; and I quote:
"I now know that I am not alone with having problems with these tires. I received them OEM when I purchased my Volvo S60 T5. At approximately 18K miles the front passenger side tire developed a buldge in the sidewall. I am beginning to smell a rat.. When I took it back into the dealer they said that I had hit a curb (although there was no visible scarring on either the tire or the wheel)... hmmm... Does anyone see a pattern developing here?"
P.S. I am taking the fifth since I did not try P6s on a bimmer because I like the michelin tires. Anyone?
This is good....I was about to create a post for TIRES.......Now, regarding the TireRACK....they have the Dunlop 2000 as a best seller....well that tire is OLD! I would guess 7 years old at least, as it was OE for my 540i 6sp....soooo I would take everthing the TireRACK has to say with a pinch of salt. OKAY now lets talk current tire technology....MICHELIN....the PilotSport 2 , now here is a great tire, it will cost ya some bucks....BUT, you have alot invested in your car, and even more in your loved ones....TIRES is not the place to try and save money (IMHO)....
I would be finding the best place to get these great tires....and JUST DO IT!!!!
PS: We cant get them in Canada - YET....so when I can, the hard-as-rock, no-good-in-the-rain DUNLOPS are coming off!!! and the PS2 is going on...END_OF_RANT....HAAAA :lol:
