    Got to get 2 new Tyres for my A4 Avant.

    Anyone recommend a good tyre with good all weather performance and in the Mid-Range anywhere up to around £130 each. (Not Fitted)

    I have got 2 Bridgestones that are fine but one is on the back and one is on the front.
    Might swap them around and put those on the back, then get 2 new fronts ? What do u think ?

    Any ideas would be great.

    good price and really good alrounder and just for a extra bonus they over measure tread width wise so you actually get a 244mm tyre with a 235 40 18
    most tyres are less across the tread than the indicated width which isnt right if you buy a 235 for example thats what you would think you would get
    but this is very often not the case .

    Vredestien Ultrac Sessanta have served me well over the past year and I've still got about 6mm of tread left on all 4 tyres. Cost - £120 fitted.

    Thanks for the posts everyone,

    I did alot of looking and eventually went for 2x (235/45 ZR17 94Y) VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA's with rim protection ridge for £86 (free delivery) per corner, from my mytyres.co.uk.

    This is the same tyre from Camskill has a better image !
    http://www.camskill.co.uk/smsimg/758/12410-12650-full--758.jpg

    Supposed to be great in the wet and dry and not too noisey. Never used them before but will give them a chance.
    They have got good reviews in some other performance car forums.

    Will report how i get on with them.

    Thanks again.
