How do these compare with the "Avon Speedmaster Mark II" tires that came on my B5? I know there's some other OEM tires that have a bad rap ("skidmasters"?).
Am I the only one who thinks the stock 'skidmaster' tyres are quite good on the tarmac? I haven't pushed myself to the limits (very rarely), but here and there I do tend to give it a bit on the turns and these Avons hold up quite well
