Audi A5 B9 Tyres 255/35 R19

Reposting here for the A5 forum:

I have been running Goodyear Eagle F1 AS3s for years on both my old A4 and current A5 getting what I consider to be a respectable 16-18k miles on the front.

Now these tyres have been superseded by the AS5 and AS6 but with all the reviews saying the tyres wear significantly faster, from people like myself who ran the AS3, I'm considering an alternative before I part with the cash and find out for myself.

Having gone through Pirelli P Zeros, Michelin Primacy and Continental Sport Contact in around 10-12k I won't be repeating that experience. 

Nexen has had a mention on here a few times but I have no idea which type to try.

I mainly do motorway miles; if anyone can make a suggestion for alternative brands, it would be much appreciated 🙂

Thanks Steve. I noticed when looking for wheels some of the tyres are AO Hankook.

They're one of the few I haven't tried, and the reviews are positive for the Evo 3, so I've nothing to lose currently.

Riken UHP have come up a few times too, but with more mixed reviews being a love / hate trend.

hello

Anyone have tried the 265 35 R 19 or 265 35 R20 Wheels?

 

There's an S5 B9 with 20s next to where I work with 35 profile. In my opinion it looks awful because of how they sit in the arches and makes the car look higher than it should be.
