    Quick tyre help needed !

    My car's up at the Audi dealer.
    It needs 4 tyres.
    The only ones they have in stock are Continentals at Ł148 each,which seems excessive.
    What's the correct S-line tyre spec,so I can phone around ?
    The load rating too please !

    Yeah,that's them.
    They're extra load though and I can't remember the coding.
    Car's not here for me to go out and check (obviously).

    Isn't Y the speed rating?

    Normally extra load tyres have EL at the end of the number.

    Yeah,you're right.
    Y is the speed rating.
    You just have to specify 'extra load' when ordering them.
    My local dealer is evidently getting greedy with their tyre prices.
    Last year,they wanted £106 for F1's.
    Now they want £137.
    I've ordered 4 Dunlop sportmax's from an independent for £104 each,fitted.
    I've no idea what they're like,but I only have the car for another 9 months so I'm not overly bothered.
    Ta again.

    not the usual Naff tyre on a new car.

    Im surprised they wanted to put Contis on though

    the contis on my tyre are £116 each,

    If you compare with teh likes of fast fit, add on about £ 10 per tyre and thats about the cost you should pay at a tyre fitter place

    Is that a good price ?
    Ł88.70 + VAT = Ł 104.22

    They offered me Yokohamas for Ł 83.70+ VAT = Ł 98.34 as well,but I've no experience of them at all,so I went for the Dunlops.
