I don't own an S3 but after recent research and experience I wouldn't go anywhere else other than the Premium brands. So you're talking Continental, Goodyear, Michelin, Pirelli etc.

For what it's worth the Goodyear Asymetric 2's have excellent customer feedback and are cheaper than many premiums.

Sorry for not directly answering your question.

Thanks for that website the prices are the best iv found thanks



mjr901 you live near me I'm from Hereford where's the best place you buy tyres from?

Ive always as excellent service from A44 tyres, sometimes can be a little expensive though.

Other than that, I'm in the same position as you are.

I have 2 bald front tyres and rears are close.

I think camskill are gonna be the best bet.

Ive priced some at work (landrover) and they are still expensive. Theres not a huge margin in the premium stuff.

So I think I may buy from camskill and get work to fit them, however, im yet to explore another option as I know the workshop controller at VW and he has told me to phone him and I'm hoping he's gonna 'sort me out'.

Ill text him now actually!

As a complete and utter outsider that (from having them fitted to my Astra VXR) are Vredestein Ultrac Sessenta's.

I've had the original Continental Sport Contact 2s, Goodyear Eagle F1s, Dunlop SP Sport 9000s and I would pick the Vredesteins over all 3. They seem to grip as well (if not better) and they seem to last a really well too.

Pilot Super Sports are the direct replacement for the much popular PS2. PS3s are not even as good as PS2s, Michelin changed the way the tyres were ranked when the PS3 was launched by introducing more tyre types, which is why the PS3 doesn't compete/replace the PS2.

Personally I would spend my money on SC5s or Asymmetric 2s.

Thanks for all the advice In the end I went for the Michelin PS3's and managed to get them for £520 fitted and all bit of a dent to the wallet as on Thursday I also had the 40k service done so that has made a big dent. Down side no mods for the car for a bit :( but at least I won't have to worry about the tyres for another 10k+ I hope.
