    Wheels/Ride hieght/etc

    Hello all

    Just a quick one (as they say)

    I'm looking to buy a current gen TT - most like a 2.0 petrol Quattro.

    Just wondering - I live in the middle of nowhere in the Chilterns - the roads are abysmal round here these days. I've had to ditch the S2000 as it just doesn't work up here.

    Are the alloys tough on the TT? - any to be avoided? - any spec to avoid - I need control and grip but can't handle any more osteopath bills!


    The guide at UsedCarExpert is no much use - neither is Honest Johns - so I thought I'd come here.

    Any advice helpful -

    Best

    Keith

    Head onto the TTForum, youll get better info on the Mk2 there.
    I don't really know enough about them to offer any help but the Mk1 was a good car

    I've a 2011 TT 2.0 petrol Quattro DSG that runs on Audi 17-inch 5-spoke V-design rims with Bridgestone Potenza RE050 (245/45) tyres in the summer, and Audi 17-inch 5-spoke trapezoidal rims (easier to clean) with Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme tyres (225/50) tyres in the winter. All good for me and no problems at all (not sure about after market wheels however, I'll always use the Audi ones.

    Note: the 17-inch rims have a much better ride than 18-inch rims, much better cushioning from the extra tyre wall height and, in my view, little or no loss in grip.

    And, I run the same Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme tyres on my RS3 during the winter months.
