Hi,
My 1988 924S came with Eagles which I noticed were pretty old.

I found them plain scary in the wet, with the back end just breaking away suddenly. I know this is a hard compound tyre and with age I figure they have only got harder. But has anyone else experienced this? And what is an alternative to these tyres. I am standard wheels, so 195/65 R15.

Any help greatfully recieved.

Martin

I am running Falken Ziex ZE912 on my 924s. The same size as yours. They do just fine.

I ended up buying Toyo Proxies CF2. Incredible results, transformed the handling. Very happy so far.
