Well looks like I am going to have to bite the bullet and get a pair of new tyres for the front of the quattro. I was going to put the same Avons on but the ZZ3 are discontinued. I've been quoted £138 fitted per tyre for the Avon ZZ5, any opinion on these? Or I can get vredestien (sp?) ultrec sessanta for the same price, which were held in very high regard on the golf mkv gti forums that I used to frequent. Any others I should be considering?
