I agree with most of what you say. I've had Kumho's, Pirelli's and Falken's.

Not to defend the Pirelli's, they do wear fast, but while getting there they handle very good. For the price, the Falken's are the best. They stick to the road like no others and Kumho's are next in my palmares.

For winter tires (and we got some good ones here), the very best are Nokian Hakkapeliitta. They are unbeatable.

Just my $0.10.

With people looking for winter tires and have quesions I thought I would bring this excellent threat back up front.

Nice write up.

I just bought a 2001 A6 Avant and I have a set of Hankook I-Pike from a previous car. I'm wondering if any of you have ever run 15" rims with winters? These tires are 205/55 R15 and I would like to put them on but I can't find anywhere if I can put 15"'s on this car.

just need to find a place around here that has some good deals on them
I second that. One of the best "bang for your buck" summer performance tires. I just installed a set on my S4 as well.

just purchased a 2009 A4 3.2 this week. Just wondering what size rims will fit. I was thinking of a staggered look, maybe 19 x 8.5 front and 19 x 9.5 rear, any idea if this will fit?

I have to agree with the Dunlop Sport Maxx tires. I bought a brand new set. Great grip, but now I'm in my 3rd summer and they're pretty much done. They didn't even last 20K's.....

It is true that tire opinions vary, as well do driving styles. It is true that tire opinions vary, as well do driving styles. The P6's are very nice but mucho $$$

Just put a set of WS-80 Blizzaks (225-45 x 180) on my S4 for the the winter and they are squirmy. Fun for getting the car out of shape under acceleration, but the side walls are too soft for my liking. I had test drove a S4 with same size LM-60's and they were much better.

Just my two cents.
