    OK, the front P Zero's on my MY11 Black Edition A4 are about done (13.6k), so looking around for new boots. I had Dunlop Sport Maxx on my old B8, and seem to remember something about specific boot fitment for Audi? So am I right in thinking I need to buy Sport Maxx GT to fit on my 19" Black Edition alloys, or can I get away with Sport Maxx which a slighty cheaper @ ATS.

    Thanks

    I've had bad times with SP Sport Maxx before and was totally devastated to find Sport Maxx GT on my new car. Touch wood they don't seem too bad if a little noisy. I'm at 13k miles with still lots of life left.

    Not sure if I'd buy them again though.

    Someone on here said they had 34k out of there dunlops which is pretty good going.

    Never had dunlops before, I've only done about 2000 miles on them so far, but seem okay at the moment.

    Always had continental sport contacts on all my Audi's
    And my new car came with sport contact 3's
    (I think they're 'heavy load' on the A4).
    I don't do loads of miles but in my experience a
    Very good all round tyre with a reasonable driving life.

    Also heard about the Dunlops having a long life. Picked my new 2nd hand car up today. Dunlops all round, 10k done and 5mm left on all tyres.
    Also heard good things about the Kumho KU31s - at a mere ~£160 per corner!

    Yep, i had 34k out of my dunlop gt's, so got them fitted again!!

    I'm pretty sure you need the GT's as they are AO rated........??

    Yes, you probably could buy better tyres, but what makes them better is up to you, i wanted long life so went for dunlops.
