As above what's the best tyres to put on the rear of my diesel a4 s-line
whats the best you can afford?
thats what i thought, its not just about whats the best tire, but what money your willing to pay, im on a budget myself so would like to hear what people say about different tires and value for money?
As above, but definately get the best you can afford, below are two websites I have used while looking for tyres that suit my driving styles.
Running on Toyo Proxes at the moment - excellent all round trye (expensive tho'), will be trying Hankook's on the front next.
Hope this helps

Vredestein sessanta's, awesome tyre for the money. Have had them on last 5 cars.
Goodyear Eagle NCT Asymetric's !
I have had a very good experience with the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tyres. For the price they are amazing and wear well.

HTC Explorer Cases
As everyone has said it depends on your budget. If you want a slightly cheaper option, I have Kumho KU39s on my 2.0TFSI at the moment and they are fine. Had them for about 1000 miles and no issues, wet and dry grip is good.

Yep love these tyres and its all i use now.
Although buy them from here as they are £115 a tyre!

Would these tyres better on my cat than the Goodyears? I have a 2.0T FSi front wheel drive and I get a fair bit of play when burying the pedal !!
eh, you copy and paste my words then post a HTC advert, you lost me there pal
Looking for mid range tyre £100-£150 . Is it true that asymetrical are better on the rear for an a4 than a directional tyre
Not sure mate, but i have never had any problems with them, there fantastic in the rain and suprisingly good in the snow too.
And for the price you cannot go wrong, £115 for a tyre that performs the same as contis and goodyear.
I would give them a try before spending alot on top branded tyres
Why midrange? as we are saying you can buy vredestein ultra sessantas, these are performance/top range tyres for £115!!
[FONT=Tahoma, Calibri, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]Sorry to hi jack, but what's the wear like on the ultrac sessanta's? What sort of mileage are you getting out of them?[/FONT]
So general consensus is Vredensteins over Goodyear !
Vredestein Sessanta's are the best tyre Ive ever had.
Good grip in the wet and dry, also hard wearing
Looks like my next set of tyres have been decided upon.
Good reviews here too. Not sure on the width and profile of mine off the top of my head though:

I used Sessanta's on my old Scoob Forester STI and they were immense.
My current A4 S Line Quattro came with Uniroyal Rain Sport 2's, which actually run them pretty close and they are a great price as well.
it don't make a difference when a nail goes in it
The wear rate is minimal from my experience on the Sessanta's.
Maybe in your case, but my quattro eats them, although to be fair i change them every year anyway!
I have had Michelin Pilot sport 2 and Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric so far on my A4, the Goodyear tyres have been fantastic more so in the wet. I have also used the Goodyears on my previous car (Mitsubishi Evo 8) again no complaints.
oh great! Auto Express agrees with me
