Coming up to 20k on my Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres (235/40/18) and thinking of changing to the Michelins. I drove a similar spec. S line A4 with these on recently and was surprised how much more compliant they were compared to the Dunlops. It was a treat not to have to avoid drain covers, cats eyes and pot holes! The only thing I'm not sure about is that don't seem to have much protection against contact with kerbs. The tyre is almost flush with the rim, whereas the Dunlops have a rubbing strip on the side wall. This has definately prevented damage to the alloys on at least a couple of occassions. Can anyone comment please? Thanks in advance.
