    Hey guys,

    I have an '10 A5 Sportback and my tyres need a change and I need some advice. I was looking for a balance between good performance and price, and I've found the following tyre:

    Dunlop Sport Maxx RT XL
    2553519DU1YXR
    FUEL EFFICIENY:C
    WET GRIP:A
    NOISE:1 bar 69 dB
    PRICE: £215.60

    I've managed to find a deal for £201 per tyre incl fitting from blackcircles.com so price seems good too.

    The specs are the best I have seen right now but it says it's a 'summer tyre'. Now that's where my concern lies. Why is this a summer tyre and would it be fine for me to use? I barely clock 5K a year. It's barely a daily driver so it's not as if I'll be replacing them any time soon. The wet grip is also the best rating out there, so that shouldn't be too much of a concern.

    Opinions would really be helpful.

    Also, is there any GOOD refurbishers for Alloys in London/Surrey?
