    Tyres for the Audi

    Morning All!

    I am due to replace 2 tyres on the front of the Audi and was wondering whether you guys could recommend a decent tyre? I used to have the Bridgestones RE050 on the 888 but am wondering whether they are actually worth the extra cash. The sizes are 235, 45, 17.

    Can anyone comment on the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta?

    Many thanks

    I had vredestiens on my 888 shev when I first bought it and they were terrible. Personally I'd stick with Toyos or the Bridgestones.

    Thanks for the advice gentlemen - so Toyos it is then. Are the T1Rs the recommendation to go for? Oh and I remember something about it stating about overload? Do you know what they mean? Is it to do with PSI?

    (Really sorry to be a pain but still learning about general and basic car maintenance!)

    you mean extra load (XL), and you need to mention this when ordering the tyres as they are slightly more expensive and have to do with the weight the tyre can bear.

    The toyos are a good tyre but imo the goodyear eagle f1's are far better. Better levels of grip and last a bit longer.

    I had a full set of gsd3's but replaced then with the asymmetric this year and the wet grip seems a lot better, dry grip is the same as the gsd's

    If budget will stretch I say get the GY eagle F1 Asymmetric

    Also it is advised that all tyre's are kept equal on 4 wheel drive cars as it reduces strain on the transmission. Not sure how much truth is in that statement but I always make a point of replacing all four tyres at once.
