Sine the Furtster has 60k it is still young enough to warrant quality tires, so I bought the Yokohama Avid Ascent from Discount. Supposedly made with orange oil which makes for a more temperature stable compound. I can't tell anything from driving it. New tires always seem smoother no matter what brand/type. It's not like I ever 'get on it' anyhow. My only trick is to downshift into 3 instead of braking. Auto.

Now maybe I can really "peel out".
