I just put a set of BFG G-force Sport 235-60-15 tires on my red cougar; it has the sport springs on it... handles nice...
I love 'em!
I was waiting for the Traction T/A 235's to come in, but they never did; I didn't want to go back to 225s, so I bought the sports.
Better traction than the Traction T/A's, but I'm sure they won't last 40k miles, either.
245's are a bit too wide for the rims for rough handling, IMHO. They're not stiff enough feeling from the steering wheel for me. (YMMV...)
Cooper tires age too fast for me; the rubber gets hard in less than a year, it seems. They do burnouts real well then, tho.
By the time my traction T/A's were getting too stiff, they were worn out.
Anyone else have issues with the rear tires wearing in the center as if overinflated? I'm now running the rears 3psi lower than the fronts...
Tire wear is more even now.
