Default A5 Winter Tyres

Hi guys does anyone know where is the best place to purchase these ? The Audi dealer in toronto told me seeing as i have 19 inch summer tyres i will need winter ones and probably need to go down a size and will roughly cost 2 grand.

Im wondering if it would be best to get a second hand pair

i personally wouldnt buy used tires (done it before, they ended up popping)
give simply tire a call, theyre located on toro road. bought tires from them before and so have many in the audi community, they are excellent

you can get used wheels on kijiji. OEM audi 17 inchers should be <$500. Otherwise you can get the whole package from simply tire too, iirc they start at around $1500

I've bought used winter tires before and had no issues at all.

I got a set of winter tires this season. Before that, I was looking at options. One tire dealer had good tires but only third party rims for Audi. I thought about it and decided that I would want the original Audi rims. Then I checked the dealers special, checked the tires specs. These were Dunlop, designed for sporty cars. That did it.
A5 is a sporty car, needs sporty tires. go what the manufacturer recommends. Expensive? well, it is not a cheap car. It's your second wife, treat her well. Give her what she needs.
