    Have you considered Goodyear F1's?

    I had these as my last set. Last a lot longer than Toyo's which are really soft and only lasted me 9k miles. There's not a lot of difference in the tread pattern between the two either.

    Never really liked Yoko's. always seemed a bit "twitchy" to me and not that good in the wet.

    I've had Toyo's, Pirellis, Pilots and now have Yoko Parada Spec 2's on at the moment and have to say for out and out sheer grip in the dry, the Yoko's kick ass big time.

    Best all round tyre I would say were the Pilots...

    no not toyos they're too soft the inner walls ripped on a front pair for me on a dual carriage way

    f1's good value, yokos are very good really like them, avons zz3 are very good too i have a set fitted and prefer them to f1's which are just a little too hard if i were by anal about it.. little to choose between them though..

    I'm also running F1's on my S3 and can't fault them. :arco:

    I ran Yoko's on my last car (Mitsubishi Evo), I found them **** in the wet and they didn't last very long. :(

    Good choice, can't fault those tyres. I had them on mine. One thing I noticed is they do wear down quite quickly tho.
