Audi A1 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin CrossClimate 2 given 80% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 easy going miles
This tyre is fitted to a 5 door A1. The purpose is a year round everyday tyre legally capable of ski season road trips to the Alps. Consequently, a very safe tyre for UK conditions year round. For non-spirited driving, the tyre is excellent, quiet, efficient. When driven calmly, the tyre performs equally well in dry, wet and on long road trips to the Alps. When I am driving faster, I feel the snow bias limits handling speed in UK conditions and I cannot drive the A1 as quickly on a greasy UK B road as I could something like the TS870 winter tyre. For me in a faster car, it isn't a tyre I would choose.... the search goes on for the optimum tyre on COLD, greasy roads in cold ambient temperatures for fast road use. However, for my wife in an A1, excellent and safe, all year round. I think it is an excellent price, often discounted, well stocked and I would recommend it for anyone that isn't spirited in their driving.

Writing about the Tigar High Performance given 70% (215-45-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5500 average miles
I needed to replace a set of very high performance, but extremely worn summer tyres, before a long trip. Due to availability and budget constraints I went with the Tigar High Performance tyres. These have proven very good, especially at the price point. The tyres offered really good dry grip, handling and comfort. Wet grip is also good and they are relatively silent. They have worn a bit over 5500miles, but I expected this considering the price. In all I would definitely recommend to anyone on a budget.

Bought 4 tyres in a month the tyre tone into pieces. How can this be. Trust me no good tyres. Buy at your own risk

Writing about the Bridgestone Weather Control A005 EVO given 79% (215-45-17-V)
Driving on mostly motorways for 1000 average miles
Overall, a good set of tires. In the dry the grip is good, nothing special but good considering they are all weather tires. In the wet is where they start to shine, good grip both in acceleration and braking as well as in the turns with wet roads. At highway speed, in very wet conditions under heavy rain, no aquaplaning at all. They give a lot of confidence in these situations. In snow they are used to take you home, they do not have a spectacular performance, but if you live in climates like me where it snows once every three or four years, on the days that it snows you will not have problems to return home safely. If you drive on snowy roads frequently or go a lot to ski resorts, these are not the right tires, they have not been designed for that, in those situations a set of full winter tires are the right ones. But as I say, for normal day-to-day driving in dry or wet, very good tires. In the snow they will save you, nothing else.

Writing about the Davanti DX390 given 97% (185-60-15-H)
Driving on mostly town for 1000 easy going miles
I bought these from a friends garage, Harborne Tyres and told him I would leave a review as I was really Happy with the service and the tyres. He said this was the best place to write a review as you can’t do it on his website. Only drive an A1 and don’t drive fast so not sure exactly how to score some of the above, but the tyres have been really good so far so tried to reflect that in the marks. First time I’ve changed the tyres from the ones it came on. Can’t notice any difference which he said was good as the same tyres he replaced would have cost me a lot more.

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip 9 given 87% (185-60-15-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 average miles
A perfect winter tyre for city car. I tested it on snow wet dry and it outperformed my expectations. Really recommended for european winters (I live in north of italy)

Writing about the General Altimax One S given 89% (225-40-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
I put a pair of these on the front of my wife's 2018 Audi A1 TDI after the Bridgestones were looking tired @17k miles. I was dubious about using mid range tyres for the first time ever but the Continental ownership of General reassured me. The tyres are rated B/C in respect of wet weather and rolling resistance.
Having now scrubbed in for a thousand miles the tyres are very impressive, it's a nippy little car with bags of torque for such a low kerb weight but the front grips well in the wet and seems to pull up well under moderate braking. So far, so good, it's difficult to comment on the wear rate but @ £75 per they're looking good.

Writing about the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx given 57% (215-45-16-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 8200 spirited miles
Hard ride and high road noise. Reasonable dry grip (poorer in the wet) and handling, with fairly poor road feedback. Replaced with Continental Premium Contact 2 which seem much more compliant and grippy, slightly quieter, and offer a smoother ride.

Driving on mostly country roads for 200 spirited miles
A comfortable and dynamic tire with reasonably low road noise, good compliance and good feedback. The tire grips well in wet and dry conditions and seems to offer an improvement in braking over the previous Dunlop Sport Max that were on the car.

Shockingly hard and awful tyre. Dry grip is decent and wet is shocking. This is down to the hard compound of the tyre. Avoid buying these!!!
