    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 !!

    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

    Vredestein Sessanta's are the best tyre Ive ever had.

    Good grip in the wet and dry, also hard wearing

    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.

    The wear rate is minimal from my experience on the Sessanta's.

    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.
