    Pirelli's.....

    Well I had one fail today, not sure if it was due to a puncture but the inside rim failed, i'll get pictures but at least I have an excuse to change them, although the otherside still has a good 4mm on it. Time for some goodyears me thinks

    Funny because i am just junking a set of Goodyears (F1)...225/40 18 because the noise drives me up the wall.. At 4000 miles Audi say they are badly out of shape...sounds like i am driving a landrover...lol

    i changed my fronts to Goodyear F1 Asym, i was going to get the highly rated F1s but the Asym was fairly new back then and apparantly better although the tread pattern isn't as pretty lol

    I like them, great grip in wet and dry although feedback could be better. Got mine from Elite Direct that had a good price on them.

    Yeap second that, I'm also running F1s Asym's on the front and they are way better then the Rear Pirelli's. So much so that I have to be carful in the wet as I have had the car simply lose total grip in the rear tires when the front just holds on in the bends. Only downside is that I think rhey are wearing as little quicker then the Pirelli's.


    How about going for somthing different?
    I would love to know what these run likem (Evo rate them)

    Always the Mrs, all us blokes park perfectly every time

    I think the above are the tyres a neighbour has put on his Cupra R - I've not spoke to him but being a bit sad where car stuff is conccerned I noticed the unique tread pattern with the single vertical line, wonder if he fancies going for a pint and talking about tyres.......maybe not LOL

    I found Dunlop Sportmaxxes the best all-rounder on my A3.
    Comfier and quieter than F1's and Continentals I had before.
    Grip was fine too, if not quite up to F1 levels.
    Worth the slight trade-off though.
