Wait, the R came with 5P's? That's not terrible, much better than what they throw at us plebeians. I do wish they'd just have a Michelin 4S option, but ultimately, it's just a quick trip to Discount Tire anyway.Yeah, even the Coni 5Ps weren't that great for a "Max" performance tire. They wore out fast. I'd rather have seen the Extreme Contact Sports. VW should provide optional summer tires for both the GTI & R.
