    Hi guys,

    Need 4 new tyres on my S3 in the 225/40 18 size, but looking at a budget of around £400-£450 fitted. Can anyone recommned any? I've used Goodyear F1's before which I really liked. Not impressed with the Sportcontact's fitted at the mo, and they have only lasted 9,000 miles! Though I do give the car some hammer!

    Cheers :beerchug:

    £400 is not much of a budget for tyres for a performance car, you will be struggling.
    I'd check costco out tho at that price, love my PS2's!

    Falken 452 are not bad tbh. Good for the money compared to others though.

    Toyo T1-R's are ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!! End of story.
    Never had 452's before but they are ment to be good value but you get what you pay for in the end.
    Eagle F1 Ays as a minimum quality for an S3 I would say or whats the point in having the car?

    Be interested to find out how you get along, heard the 452s wear pretty quickly and are a definate compromise in terms of quality.

    Personally I'd have splashed out on some Constisport 3s/Pilot Sport 3s/Eagle F1 asymm 2s for an S3, it deserves a decent set.
