    Hey all,

    I got my new tyres fitted. I asked on here which tyres to get (235/40 18 ) for my A4 and the top and most frequent answer was goodyear eagle f1 tyres. Having researched the market I soon realised that these tyres were the ones to get, despite the high price.

    My mind was made up recently by a RS4 I'd seen with the exact same tyres, and made the car look immense!!!

    I managed to get them at a better rate at a local garage, as well most of these mobile companies were much higher in price!

    Well here are some pictures for you all:

    Thanks for the suggestion everyone


    My initial thoughts:

    car feels much more heavier
    grip is improved
    handling feels much smoother
    cornering is flawless!
    steering is more responsive

    feels like a proper quattro now lol
    I need to drive in some rain and snow now :)

    Now I need to get the alloys refurbed especially two of them!

    Ome of those pictures looks like part of the tyre has been chipped
    will look at that closely tomorrow
    damn!

    it's this black stuff grease probably they used I think some of it ended up on parts of the tyres to make em look wet


    I got the tracking checked as well - front was fine
    back was a bit out esp left rear toe was a bit out - didn't get it fixed in the end
    maybe next time! will check that tyre in a month or so

    I always thought these tyres weren't recommended for A4's. Theres posts from years ago warning people to avoid them....maybe they've changed and are now ok.

    The sidewalls look like Michelin PS2's, with no rim protector. Careful near curbs!!!

    I might be controversial here but IMO, Vredestein tread pattern looks a lot better.

    the vredesteins were my second choice quality tyres them ones! But these badboys are number one :)

    There is slight protection - without doubt that is much more than I had with my continental tyres they had no protection at all.

    These are by far the best tyre on the market, a nice 1cm rim protector, decent tread pattern, medium compound and excellent on the track when you running 250hp+, they out live and out grip some track tyres as my mate was saying with his cupra r racing Lvs's a3 on track tyres, the a3 just couldn't keep up with the grip and life of the tyre.

    The Eagles are cracking tyres, I went for the PS3's because they were on sale,
    In the OP pics it looks like theres a jagged edge round the tyre sidewall that doesn't look right, never seen that before.
    maybe its just the pic, looks a bit ripped tho IMHO.

    Don't go looking for snow with that type of tyre , you have not got any tread ! Well to be exact you have fine grooves which would fill up in seconds . It wont snow again till perhaps November but on 23 March this year I got so stuck with all 4 wheels helplessly springing with silly summer tyres on just 2" on level ground .
    You used to be able to get compromise tyres with grip such as Fulda but now you have to purchase 2 sets of tyres and mess around changing them over winter and summer .

    i think because they are new they are a bit "rough around the edges" that"s all!
    a good clean up and a dress and they will come up nice!

    at the minute mate i use a turtle wax gel of some sort i got from halfords in a blue spray bottle with a brush supplied with it! (i forget the exact name lol) and some turtle wax wheel cleaner, as they were doing a 3 for 2 on cleaning products!
    i like to practice with different products to see which is best, so not really a devoted brand follower! if that makes sense!
    i also use poorboys rim sealant wax to help against the crud!
    the wheels and tyres could have been a bit cleaner for the pics but that is after 120 miles, so not too shabby!

    don't know why you got stuck in snow with just 2" of snow, ive got the fwd a4 b7 and I have these tyres on all year round, not once did I get stuck or slip/slide in the snow this year. Norwich was hit with 2-4" of snow this year.

    Forgive me - these are tyres - - - -

    (And rather badly curbed rims - - -)

    Clearly, I'm missing something. What am I missing??
