It's time for mew tires for my stock 2000 A6-2.7T.
Love the thing "Generally" speaking, have a few issues,
but thats another post. (new right side ball joins at 56k miles?
Currently I have Goodyear Eagle RS-A in stock 16" size.
This tire is the quietest I've ever had. I love 'em for that.
Handling is "OK". They wear a bit faster than I would like.
I need an all round performance tire, but can't sacrifice too much
That being said, I do like to carve high speed turns as if GS skiing.
I realize the trade offs involved here.
Also, I live in So. California and don't see much (any) snow,
or have a long rainy season.
Current opinions ?

I drove the A6 2.7T in 2000 and thought it was "under tired", that is,

cars was because of the tires. I bought the 4.2 model because of
If I was replacing tires on the 2.7t, I would go for a premium
performance tire. I have the same Dunlop 255-40-18 tires on my RS6
and they are superb.
My preferance is for Goodyear's Assurance ComforTred. You have to hang
jingle bells to hear them. These pups have an 80K warranty. Mounting
them was like getting a new car.
I do my tire research at www.tirerack.com
They will suggest tires for your year and model car and you can look at how
people have rated those tires for somthing like a dozen different
attirbutes, like wear, day handling, wet handling, noise, etc. You can
also see the best sellers in your chosen category.
