    Hi Guys,

    Have a 2013 Black Edition on 19" rotors, i know there was talk of very bad tram lining (which i also have)

    i was wondering if anyone had cured this by changing tyre brand?

    Ive always been a conti fan and am currently running sport contact 3's

    is anybody on different tyres and had issues? the same issues? or cured any problem?

    Cheers [​IMG]

    Had conti sport contact 3' and 5p', bridgestone s001 and goodyear f1's. Still tramlines.Worse when the tread wears down, can chuck you off the road if they are bad and on a camber.

    I had the contis on as standard from new and changed to Michelin sport 3 and they are a lot better!

    Bad tramlining on mine was caused by running too high pressures, even though it still does tramline a bit.

    It's also reduced some more on my 18" winters, so some of it comes with size.

    Mine on 18" tramlines. Awful in lorry grooves on motorway, predictable but pulls the car never the less.. I think it's tyre width apposed to rim diameter. I've had three decent trye brands and none have improved the situation.

    Yes, the 3rd lane is reserved for German vehicles

    I believe they come in 3-4 different makes so could be any of the top makes.
    No, but after reading tyre threads on here, these seem to have good all round reviews regarding wear and noise and mine don't tramline as much like folk suggest on here with other tyres.
    so I replaced what was already on (think mine came with dunlops)
