    The time has come to get a full set of boots on the Quattro Avant and I am torn between the tyres above!
    The price difference is negligible however the Michelin's will come with a £70 fuel card.
    My tyre size is 235/45/17 XL 97Y's

    Does anyone have any feedback/advice?

    Review's seem to point to the Eagle F1 being slightly quieter but I can't find any review of them on B6's

    Those are the exact size tyres I have on my car and I went for the Goodyears and am very happy with them.
    Got my tyres from Camskill.

    The Goodyears there are £86 each the Michelins more like £98 . I went for Goodyears as they are better in the wet grip than the Michelins and a bit cheaper. If your primary concern is dry grip then the Michelins would probably be the better choice.
    You aren't really going wrong with either tyre.

    i fitted the goodyears to my tqs and they totally transformed the car, although the car came with nexens when I bought it and they were terrible. I would definitely buy them again. and they look great.

    I had 4 (235 45 17) of the goodyears fitted yesterday and they are definitely quiter than the bridgestones I had previously. Too early really to tell how well they grip.

    I went through all this debate and ended up with Eagle F1. Nice looking and awesome rim protector too. Nice tyres.
