The chief complaint is that they wear out too fast and they have poor wet road performance and subject to scalloping or cupping as called here. The Bridgestone's seem to be the predominant choice. A few others swear by the Avon's too. I run Bridgestone's and I really like them. Look into Dynabeads for your balancing solution over lead. They are a good bet too.Why do you suggest not using Dunnies?
