Audi A8 D2 4.2 quattro Tyre Review Highlights

Driving on a combination of roads for 14600 spirited miles
Star driving those tires more than 4 years and 23500km, it time to change them. So far i was very happy with them and they did not surprise me in term of handling, etc. As i live in a tropical country, rubber is shot after 4 years with tire showing cracks on sideway, rolling area, etc. It is common here for all brands (Dunlop, Michelin, Continental, etc.) When I changed them, the wear was minimal, still not of meat on them. I was quite surprised. In term of driving quality, over year it decreased: Handling and breaking were still good but not as good as before Noise and comfort decreased, mostly due to the rubber becoming harder for to the weather condition. When I replaced them, i would have taken them again if i didn't have a good deal of some more grippy tires. I still recommend them as they did a good job in all situation

After 4 years happily using Hankook V12 evo2, i wanted something with improved grip and wet breaking. The Eagle F1 Sport is a new tire produced were I live, so i decided to try it. After 2200km, i am not disappointed with my choice, grip is very good and breaking is much better. Wear seems to be as expected and price for quality is amazing. I have really nothing to complain about it and i highly recommend it.

Writing about the Barum Bravuris 3 given 87% (240-45-18-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20000 average miles
I have used Baruns for the last 60,000 miles on an Audi A8 4.2 quattro ,which replaced Dunlops at half the price and have no regrets. Also on a VW golf R32 mk 4 also 4 wheel drive and a Polo 1.6 estate.. None of these cars is driven at the limit and wear, handling and stopping have all been good enough not to warrant comment.. I have had 2 tyres replaced on the Audi for wall collapse admittedly after some severe pot holes but I do wonder if the walls are a weak spot. Will continue to fit Barums where possible.

A comfortable ride slightly noisy on some surfaces. Excellent grip both wet and dry. Covered 60K on last set of Goodyear tyres. Certainly recommend these tyres.

Driving on mostly town for 1800 spirited miles
Living in a tropical city with lot of heavy rain storms, I wanted tyres with good handling on the wet and that could last about 20-25,000 km
So far I have not been disappointed:
- Dry handling is great, never lost traction, never felt I reached the limit of the tyres' grip
- Wet handling is very good as long as the volume of water on the road is not excessive. I felt little tendency to aquaplaning when had a fair amount of water on the road (1+ cm) so this is totally expected
- After 2,600 km I can say that the wear is really regular and should last the number of km I planned
- When I fitted them, the car became much more quiet
- Steering wheel respond is good. Of course you cannot ask a car of 1,750 kg to respond like a small sports car but the car always went were I wanted the way I wanted without effort
- Well priced compared to competitors (at least in my region)

All in all, a very good surprise and I highly recommend those tyres
