    Anyone bought an S3 recently?

    Can you tell me what the tyre fitment is please?

    Conti 2s have been discontinued and I seem to remember new S3s now have different rubber (and not Conti 3s)

    I generally stick with manufacturer recommended tyres as had issues before with poor handling/wear on different makes/models.

    Thanks

    Jeez, well ive never heard of them to be honest.

    I had to go outside and look in order to answer Mattw's post.

    Strange that i never payed more attention seeing as its the tyres that play a big part in the ride.

    I would have thought stock tyres would just be run of the mill mass production stuff?

    Oh well, im pleasantly chuffed
