    sorry guys it's the tyre thing again. I'm about a 1000 miles off a new set of tyres and currently running conti 3s on 19" rims. A4 177 Tdi black edition quattro. The contis have been awful for tram lining and I don't want that again. I know everyone will have their own views, but some advice would be welcome, cheers!

    Going on what I've used on my bmw before as soon as my a4 needs new rubber it'll be getting Goodyear eagle f1 asymmetric 2 or 3, fantastic tyre.

    We have Michelin Primacy 3 on ours. Seems a decent tyre so far.

    I always ran Pilot Super Sports on my Alfa - handled 260bhp through the front tyres in the wet very well indeed.

    Despite more power I've opted for the Pilot Sport 4's this time because of the Quattro, and they are wider section tyre too for steering / braking (255 Vs 235).

    Not cheap by any stretch but a set would last me a year / 20k miles before, and I wasn't exactly gentle on them!

    Goodyear Eagle F1 Assemetric 2s :) the 3s have a smaller rim protector.
    Michilen super sports on my winters but find the goodyears much less noisy and perform the same or better(hard to tell they are both very good).

    Tried bridgstone s001 and was spinning in every gear on a dry road, could not keep traction in any gear when accelerating, steering was terrifying, garage swapped them immedatietely when i complained and I learnt an important lesson, stick to the good ones lol personally avoid the s001.

    Haven't seen the 3s yet Meemo but I was very impressed with the 2s so worth noting about rim protection.

    I've got Dunlop Sportmaxx RT, they replaced the appalling Continentals which were OE. These are wearing well after 5000 miles, are quiet, grip well wet or dry with predictable handling and they don't tram line

    F1 Asymmetric 2's, much, much better than the Contisport I had on before, which were scary with their tramlining; these are world apart and it handles like a different car!

    I had these on my B7 3.0TDi quattro; excellent tyres. Will definitely be on the shortlist when the OEM Contis come up for replacement.
