I have the 2003 ZTW with the 205 P6s on 16 inch wheels. Very
happy with them. They do stick very well, even in the rain. I have
heard they have sidewall problems so I have just avoided running into
curbs and potholes. No sidewall problems so far. I have about 38
thousand kilometers on them with a good bit of tread left. Nice tires.
I have seen some very good write ups on Goodrich Traction TA. Will
likely try them next.
