Audi SQ5 Tyre Review Highlights

I changed from the pirelli p zero that felt solid compared to the Goodyear. As for the noise, they seem to be the same. The good year look more beefy and also come with rim protection which is great. Looking foward to trying out the asymmetric 5s.

Can be noisy on expressway surfaces although Very comfortable. Steering can change from understeer to oversteer due to soft sidewalls P zero's steer better and are quieter although much higher treadwear

Writing about the Kumho Crugen HP91 given 81% (255-40-21-W)
Driving on mostly town for 6000 average miles
Bought a full set of Kumho Crugen HP91's about 12 months ago as replacements for the factory fitted Pirelli P-Zero's on my 2015 Audi SQ5. The Pirelli's were a good performer, but are stupidly expensive to replace and due to the relatively low treadwear rating they wear out very quickly (around 12,000miles / 20,000km's) and wore on the edges predominantly. Knowing I wanted to move away from the expensive Pirelli's, I found the Kumho's which rated well on multiple websites I looked at (including for overall quality, grip and quietness, were much more reasonably priced, had a higher treadwear rating of 420 (vs 300 on the Pirelli's) so they should last longer when driven in the same manner, and had a more square shape which should help the tyre wear evenly (instead of on the edges like the rounded off Pirelli's). Overall very happy with the Kumho's, they have been on the car now for around 12 months and about 6-7k miles (10,000kms). The tyres are quiet to drive on, grip well in both wet and dry conditions, are wearing evenly and slowly, and look better on the rim compared to the Pirelli's. Steering feel/feedback was also noticeably better with the Kumho's, but hard to compare that aspect on brand new tyres to the worn out Pirelli's they replaced.

Writing about the Dunlop SportMaxx RT 2 given 90% (255-40-21-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 miles
Replaced my Pirelli PZero's after 17,000 miles and was inspired by the Dunlop series after having them on my previous Audi S4 Avant. Immediate reduction in road noise, grips in both wet and dry conditions and have complete confidence when cornering at speed. Better fuel return albeit marginally just adds to the all round thumbs up. Whilst they are a much softer compound than the PZero,s even at this stage with limited mileage, I would find it hard to consider another tyre.

Writing about the Vredestein Wintrac xtreme S given 92% (255-45-20-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 15000 average miles
Reference car: Audi SQ5 2014

I bought our SQ5 second hand and these tyres came with it;

I see positive and negative reviews but people need to realise that this tyre is released in 2014
And at the time these tyres were extremely recommended for Hig Performance Cars such as Porsche 911 , Aston Martin etc.

Of my personal experience with these tyres (living in Switzerland in the Ski area) these handle our SQ5 extremely good. Never slippery or whobby. In the wet they stay safe, dry also. On my size: 255/45/20 they do good.

They are very quite and also comfort is not to bad.
I would only buy these if you are driving an HP car.

Next winter (2019) when these are done i try the new versions of the Extreme S the Wintrac Pro. :)
They are absolutely the go for high performance cars.

Just like i said these tyres are from 2014... and only if you can buy these cheap i would buy them otherwise go dor the Vredestein Wintrac Pro :))
