    Hi.

    I put a set of goodrich g-grips on my Allroad in November of 2011. I have done about 18k on them and they are already looking worst for wear (because of a tracking problem). I was told they were a very good wearing tyre but I have not seen those results.

    Allroads seem to be a special circumstance when it comes to tyres as they seem to wear them out faster than other cars.

    What tyres would you recommend that are hard-wearing for Allroads?

    Does the tyre say AO on it anywhere? I know Pirelli have veichle specific fitments, so the avrage joe buys 225/40/18 P6000, where as an audi driver would have to buy 225/40/18 P6000 (AO) they are the same tyre but with Audi's spec's.

    Dunno if goodrich use a same sort of system though.

    I started working for a tyre wholesaler a month or 2 back and i'm learning all sorts of useless stuff like this lol

    Thanks for replying cjsuk. I just checked and I don't see AO on them. They are 225/55/R17's.

    I do about 30k per year so need something that lasts at least a year. The Allroad seems to be chewing through tyres.
    I had a Saab before that was very light on tyre wear.

    Any suggestions for the hardest wearing tyre?

    I couldnt tell you, like i say not been there long and wouldnt like to recommend something I say, BUT tommorow I will get some info for you and see if there any Audi specific tyres you should be using.

    2006 2.7 TDi quattro. Budget = if they are hard wearing I'll get them because they will be better than what I have on it.
    Thanks for the help.
