    It's difficult to find the limits of grip with quattro in the dry with anything other than cheap budget tyres (on normal roads), but I've never felt so confident in the wet than with the Vredesteins. They cut through surface water like a hot knife through butter!

    I use the Vredestein's here in Aberdeenshire, great tyres and never had any issues with them, best traction ever.

    Ok so 2 weeks in, found the tyres sqeeled a bit on cornering, so upped the psi to 36 from my usual 33 on toyos, that made all the difference. As for performance, they are pretty awesome in the dry - definately on par with if not slightly better than the toyos. In the wet - f**k me they hold and repel the water, much better than my trusted Toyos

    36psi... I run 40 - 42psi...

    This is based on the standard pressures from 18" rims/tyres

    Glad you're as impressed as everyone else with the Vreds!

    42psi is standard pressure on the 3.0tdi. Don't you check your handbook or pressure sticker???? Anything less and you can tell the difference in handling.
    You go to 46psi if the cars fully loaded.

    Vredesteins are amazing, I got 4 fitted for £490 from tyreman.co.uk

    Wonder why the psi is so markedly different between the 2.0 and the 3.0. Presume heavier engine.
