Tony, are you sure they're not P6000? I've never heard of P8000 from
There are actually two versions of the P6000. One is a summer tire, the
other is an all-season (P6000 Sport Veloce), although I've never
actually seen the all-season variety for myself. Tread pattern looks
very similar on both though.
The summer P6000 225/45/17 was the OEM tire on my A4. You definitely
don't want to be driving in snow or even in very cold weather on it. I
was generally happy with them, but I sold them after only 5K miles when
I sold my rims. I have read numerous reports from other A4/Audi drivers
saying that they become noisy very fast (within 10K miles or so). Dry
handling is good. Wet traction is OK - not as good as my current S-03s.
