    I have been offered 2 brand new Continental Contisport 255/35 ZR19 M3 at a very good price, they are the original contisports, not the version 2 or 3.

    I think they are intended for the BMW M3, but will fit my A6 Le Mans. I'm very tempted but wondering if I might have an issue if they are not XL (extra load) rated, i.e. they lack the stiffer side walls which I think are recommended (not sure if mandatory) for the A6 C6.

    I'd welcome some opinions on this, as I'm very close to going for it !

    they are probably cheap as they are quite old, tyres do have a shelf life

    the XL thing is weird, the C5 RS6 did not require XL tyres, but the allroad did.

    not sure on the C6 chassis, but I was looking for tyre recently and decided not to risk it, as wrong tyres can invalidate your insurance if you have a smash or somthing happens

    I think they might be quite old as I put the series 2 on my old S6 so these must be old?? I would never take risk on tyres, how cheap can they be.......not worth it!
