    Fronts tyres

    I've done a quick seasrch and could not find anything hence the post.

    I need to replace my front tyres on my 2.0 TFSI S tronic (FWD). Currently the front and rear have Pzero roso's on. How much of a difference will having a different brand of tyre on the fronts make? Would I be best off getting another pair of Pzero roso's?

    Thanks in advance...

    hello

    here is a link to a tyre review

    http://www.caranddriver.com/features...ad-page12.html

    this puts

    Goodyear eagle F1 GSd-3's in first place, which I had fitted to my golf and they are a great tyre, and hard wearing, but they do not have to look of a quality tyre like the michelin pilot sport.

    Continental sport contact 2's in second which I currently have fitted to my A3 , which i think are ok , but they are vaugue in the dry when compared to other tyres, and I dont consider them to be hard wearing

    Michelin pilot sport PS 2's which i think are great , but they are very expensive

    Hi

    Have just had a pair of Eagle F1 Asymmetrics (225/45 R17) fitted to my TDI Sport Sportback. Far beter than the Pirelli that came off it . . and cheaper too. I paid 78 each for them from mytyres.co.uk, which included VAT and delivery !

    Also, you should always have new tyres put onto the rear axle, so will need to swap the existing rears to the front.

    Hope this helps
