Just wondering what tyres are fitted to your S4's? I have Dunlop MAXX GT's on a 255/35/19 96Y A0, and TBH they are ****! What really sparks this post though is the fact that i picked up a nail in the off side rear which i decided to get repaired for a couple of reasons: Cost (this side of Christmas) Life left in remaining rubber and the desire to fit anything other than Dunlop I also dont think i will be going anywhere particularly fast before March of next year. I dont want to get in to a fight over if a repair is the clever way forward, but i did ask the fitter how many miles he thought the tyre had done. He thought 2-3K, so when i said 12.5K he couldnt beleive it. I also noted he had a major job pulling the reinforced wall over the alloy rim. So this started me thinking i wonder if their is something wrong with this batch of tyres rubber compound? Could they be too hard, hence the extended life and poor grip? Thoughts? Phil.
