Audi A3 1.8T Quattro Sport Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Hankook Ventus S1 evo given 82% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on mostly town for 3000 spirited miles
Running these on an A3 Quattro Sport. I swicthed from Avon ZV5s which were great except for the wear. I've done about 3k in them and they look like new so I expect some longevity from them. They're as good as the Avon (and tyres like F1s and Rossos ran in previous Quattro / 4MO cars) in the dry and almost as good in the wet but I find the break-away a bit sooner than the Avons or Pirelli's would've in the same conditions.

Not as quiet as the F1 Asyms but they are good enough. They don't tramline or skip and ride the road well which can't be said of some other, bigger names.

Not as good as The F1s or Pirelli in the snow but about the same as the Avon - which isnt that good to be honest - get winter tyres for anything below 5 degs!

Not done enough miles to see how they perform at 4mm and at 2mm (when I change my tyres) but so far so good. Would I buy again - probably based on pricing and what else was available at the time.

Summary - as good as the BIG brands but for 25% less outlay

Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 easy going miles
never got chance to test them properly as they have died at age 5 months 12k on them at most.
the rears are scalloped , front are ripped and cracked bits falling off them.
I don't think maxxis should be making car tyres, truck tyres now that just scary.
they are very noisy , in the wet suffer from aqua plaining , snow that scared the hell out me avoid them
