huh? There is no hype but negative hype about the RE92...they suck! They are also the OEM tire for the WRX and a bunch of other cars...Also the only reason ppl sell them is to get rid of them to get new tires, and the ppl that buy them either A- dont care or B- are putting **** on their car when they sell it. And if you have the 070, thats better than the 92... search is your friend..

Ck

PS make sure your flame suit is on :-P

RE-92's are the crappy tire's that come OE on the RS/WRX. The reason you see them so often and they are so cheap is that the first mod everyone does when they buy an RS/WRX is get better tires. If you don't care about performance, just cheap tires, they are a real steal.

Only buy the 92's if you plan on dying soon.

Re-92's are terrible tires if you cant drive. Otherwise they are just a decent all weather tire. If you want a high performance tire... then you buy something else. I've driven on the 17" stock and 16" stock Re-92's and at least you can get the 17's to not rollover if you put enough air in them...

My guess is Wolfen42 is one of those people that have been buying up everyone's RE92's for a really good price. No disrespect intended. If you can live with the RE92's then they're a great bargin.
