    Good Year Eagle Assymetrics are superb, had them on my S3, fab in both wet and dry and lasted longer than the original conti's. Also cheaper than the Michilins I think.

    Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas are currently what mine car is wearing and am very pleased with them. Only done 1,000 miles so cannot comment on how well they're lasting

    I agree with him ^ ..if money is not a problem then I would go for michelins everytime..have tried alot of tires but I just find that the michelins have by far the most grip although they do generally wear faster. Like I said though..if money wasnt a problem. Try ps'3.

    Running Cont 3 and I'm quite happy with them. If money is no object then PS3 would be my choice too.

    Just got quote from costco for ps3's - £141 each, not bad! Never bought them tho as once i got there I asked him to do a depth check as they still looked fine to me on closer inspection and turns out ther was 3.5-4 mm tread left. Only yesterday I was told by Aberdeen Audi that they only had 2mm left after the car had been in for some warranty work......what they playing at?!!
