Had 2 sets of Continental sport contact 2. Very poor wear rate 16000 miles from fronts and a bit vague on fast turn in
Now got Michelin pilot sport on front, much better turn in and hopefully better wear rate.
I also got the michelins cheaper.
Continentals about £140 each
Michelins between £170 to £200
Michelins at Costco £117 each fitted and balanced
Like RickT, I've found Dunlop SP Sport 9090s the best combo - they do seem to be quieter than other tyres (Continentals Contact make a real row on the missus' A3)
Had 39000 on the front pair, and 48000 from the rear pair.
***NB For tyres, check out the website mytyres.co.uk - have ordered both sets of tyres from them and had them delivered to a local garage for fitting - beat any other major tyre outlet for price (eg. £182 fitted for a pair, compared to £260 at kwikfit, nationwide autocentre etc etc)***
Currently on a set of Dunlop SP Sport 9090,s. Previous set was the same. Replaced all 4 tyres after 23000miles. I will be replacing with the same tyre in the very near future unless somebody can advise of a better make for the money. These are on an 03 A4 2.5tdi Quatro sport.
