    Choosing Tyres

    Hi,

    I am after a decent set of tyres for my A4, but worry that they are not going to be 'good enough' for the Quattro.

    I have seen the below on black circles:

    I need a good all round tyre but want grip in the winter.

    Thanks in advance

    Uniroyals all the way pal.
    I've fit tyres 10 years and swear by them

    I fitted asymmetric Goodyear Eagle F1's to my S4. Once bedded in they were great all round tyres.

    Mods Done: Q5 Rear aero wiper. Front ambient light install. Led number plate lens. Towbar with 13pin electrics.
    Mods to complete: Sport shocks to go with Eibach pro springs. Fit 17" 5 star matt black wheels. Fix lack of torque at low revs. Get a custom exhaust system fitted.

    Heard lots of people raving about the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's as a good all rounder….

    I've got Falken 453's on my summer 18's and Pirelli Sottozero's on my winter 16's…… really like both of these….

    I had Vred Ultrac Sessanta's fitted on my BMW E46 320M sport & they were very good. Really like the Goodyear Eagle F1 Assy 2's on my A4 now though.

    Vred Ultrac Vorti on my A4 Avant. Had them on 6 months and really very impressed by them.

    I've got the Goodyear asymmetric 2's and find they really suit the car. The car feels surefooted at all times and I'm getting even wear on my quattro so far. They look good too.

    About the Uniroyal. Aren't the RainSport 3 new in the market? How do they compare to RainSport 2?

    Heard good things about the Vredestein Sessanta's and the Pirelli P Zero and Eagle F1's win all the tests for summer tyres.

    For winter: I though the Sotozero's were supposed to be very good for ice/snow, but a bit ropey in the wet... I've got Dunlop SP WIntersports right now and they're good, but not amazing (just very available at short notice!) - I was much more impressed with my old Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme's - great UK winter tyre as they're really good in the wet - way ahead of any summer tyre below 10C.... as are most winter tyres.... and they're a very decent snow/ice tyre when the time comes for that too...
