    I'm on the Michelin Pilot Supersports. Really pleased with them. A lot less road noise compared with Continental conti's

    Factory ContiPremium Contact 2 swapped to Bridgestone S001's.

    Road noise noticeably louder. Performance destroys the Conti (obviously, not a sports tyre, don't even know why it came with those tyres).

    Can't get any Michellin tyres, they don't stock S1 wheel sizes according to website. I would go Michellin if I could...

    Not sure, arguably on your next wheel rotation it would suck to have less grippier tyres in the front than the back. Depends on what kind of driving you do? (Straights /street or curves)

    I fitted Michelin Pilot Super Sports on the 18 inch wheels a week ago - so much happier on these than the Bridgstones it came with. I hadn't realised the difference on the S1 until I did. Not cheap (paid £294 for two all bits and bobs included) but I don't mind paying extra to keep me and the family as safe as possible....

    I’m sure the performance out of the trees is much better, but what is the ride quality like? Are they quieter?

    Any chance of posting up a picture, as I would like to see the design of the tyre against the wheel. Thanks

    I forgot to say the Michelin's are quieter than the Bridgstones that the car came with, ride (comfort terms) appears to be the same as I only drive in Dynamic..... The grip in the wet last weekend was improved and I felt more confident keeping the throttle on through the corners with these on.

    Mine came with Continentals from the factory... do they mix tyres, or did you buy a used car?

    Bridgestones are also on mine from the factory, and I think this would be mostly the tyre used by Audi for this size. It could be a recent change in tyre supplier, hence your Continental’s.

    Bridgestones were fitted from new, as above, maybe Audi had a new preferred supplier after May 2015?

    Could be, I googled for the information as I don't know it to post up :)

    Ordered some Michelin PSS from Camskill, so looking forward to getting them fitted soon. Seriously hoping for big improvements over the OEM Bridgestones.

    had 4 x 235 35 18 uniroyal rainsport 3's fitted today.

    only done 200 miles but i think they're superb, it rides better on these than the conti's in 17" fitted before!

    and feel very tight and controlled on turn in,. Obviously not given them any beans yet.

    Have used them on A4 quattor avant before and they were great on that too.

    Michelin PSS fitted a few weeks back and the ride comfort is so much better! Happy days!

    Still to really gauge the performance levels of the tyre, but so far so good.
