They are directional too, so that limits the tyre rotation scheme. > I think I will go for them in the next month or so. Let us know how they go....what about the Continentals and what does 'directional' mean ? The Pirelli's were about $180 each. From memory I was quoted about $280 each for Michelin Pilots of some sort. (I think they were 'H' rated.) I have 15" wheels btw. Re the front-end shake, I took the car back to Bob Jane's and they re-balanced the front wheels and the shake has disappeared. It's nice to drive such a smooth quiet car again. Regards, Paul P.
