Audi A2 Tyre Review Highlights

Good grip, great on corners but wear a bit. I just swap my wheels around to even the wear

Writing about the Davanti DX390 given 42% (195-55-15-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 400 spirited miles
Not very good. Need say no more really.
I was in need of a front pair of tyres and got let down by another supplier so was a little stuck. I deliberated having read some dire reviews of them but it's only a wee Audi A2 however it is a fine handling little car much to the surprise of many folk. Hankook Ventus Prime K125 all round prior to this. Those are great tyres with dry and wet weather grip that is very progressive, wear rate impressive too and no noise unlike these Davanti's.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, they are bad. Initial impressions on dry roads I must admit was, these aren't too bad. They seem to be getting worse with a few hundred miles on them. They're coming off right away.
Don't buy!!!

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip 9 Plus given 88% (175-60-15-H)
Driving on mostly motorways for 1000 average miles
I took a chance given the lack of reviews or tests at the time and have had these on my Audi A2 since November: Too early to rate the wear yet as I’ve only done 1000 miles or so, but these are great at dealing with all conditions you’re likely to find in rural southern England. Dry and wet braking are very good and they are quiet except on concrete road surfaces, but then what type is? We had a lot of ice on the roads here recently and I live in a hilly area - these dealt with it fine as long as you drove sensibly. I’ve not had a chance to try them in snow but the reviews suggested they will be good. Based on my impressions so far, I would buy them again. I’ll update once I’ve used them for a couple of full winters (so spring next year).

Writing about the Pace Toledo TL1000 given 70% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
Had these tyres fitted on my mums car, she doesn’t drive fast or hard so they’re been pretty much perfect as they’re long lasting. Last set of TL1000s lasted about 30,000 on the front and rears were still at 4-5mm. I am a keen driver myself (track experience ect in my own cars ) and at first I was a little put off by the low scores of the tyres, however when driving on them they were surprisingly good. The car grips well in the dry and handles ok. On back roads they make the little A2 quite a competent car and I have upset faster cars through the corners. Temperature is a big factor with these tyres, colder outside temperatures the performance drops of significantly. In the wet they’re not as good, but in such a low power car they’re not too overwhelmed. I haven’t driven fast in the wet so I couldn’t comment on their performance with speed in wet conditions. Overall surprisingly good given their low ratings, but are never going to compare to premium tyres.

I like these tyres they give good feedback, wet grip could be better, we’ll see how the winter months fare!

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta KH11 given 90% (185-50-16-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 average miles
Bought this car 2nd hand with these tyres fitted all round and dealer agreed to replace the front ones for the same tyres which lasted just short of 40,000 miles!! on 'A' class and country roads. And, over the 3 years of life returned an average 69mpg.
'Comfort' and 'Grip' are difficult to measure objectively in this car as it has a firm suspension, drives like a go-kart round corners and roundabouts and, sticks to the road like glue in all but icy conditions.
Would I buy it again? - unfortunately, the KH11 is no longer made...

Writing about the Pirelli P6 given 27% (175-60-15-H)
Driving on mostly country roads for 9500 average miles
Decided to get these tires based on a test made by auto express uk.(aiming safety, performance and last of the last - the price)
unfortunately these resulted really bad on the Audi A2 in this specific tire size (175/60 15).
previously installed with OEM continental tires, the brand new P6s grip is far poor either accelarating straight, breaking and bending corners. could not believe how many times all those lights (stability control and traction control) blinked on the dashboard on my daily routine to and from work.
these are 2 years old now and you can see the tyre age trough some tiny fissures all around the rubber.
quite honestly I panic driving in wet and feel no confidence on the riding.
time to change these tires (20% wear)by a different brand and obviously no more pirellis in the near future.

Writing about the Vredestein Snowtrac 3 given 86% (185-55-15-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
Great tyres, bought for the new snowy Brighton winters and for driving over to the Alps each winter. Can't praise them enough. Better in warm weather than my old 175/60R15 standard tyres, and really good in the winter snow, even good on ice if you know how to drive properly.

Writing about the Toyo T1R given 79% (185-50-16-V)
Driving on mostly motorways for 60000 spirited miles
After trying out Goodyear & Michelin, I find the TOYO-T1R gives the best ultimate grip levels. The tradeoff is they wear out faster than others, but as they are priced mid-level, more frequent replacement doesn't necessarily mean more expense.
Maybe sidewall twist under cornering gives fractionally less precision than some others, but its barely noticeable.
They can aquaplane, even when new, in deep water but I'm not sure any others would be any better. Grip on ice is also v poor, but that's not unexpected for a summer tyre.
Overall I'm happy with this tyre and have bought about 8 now.
