Width/wear/rain. I need to order 4 new tires for an 08 roadster, today. I know the a048's are softer than the ad07's, and grab better on dry roads. Not so good in the rain, right? Any one drive on them in the rain? If so, how bad are they? But I like the idea of having the wider 195's on the front (with the a048) as opposed to the narrower 175's (with the ad07.) For those of you that have used the softer a048, with a wear rating of only 60, how many miles are/did you get out of them? Is tire rack the most reasonably priced place to buy?
Thanks for your advice guys!
