Audi A3 2.0 FSI SE Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Fulda SportControl given 100% (205-55-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 26000 spirited miles
Bought Fulda Sportcontrol after reading good test results and excellent reviews.
Compared to the Continental PremiumContact 5, SportContact 2, Michelin Primacy 3 and Michelin PS3, that had before, great upgrade. Tyres are super silent, much smoother, steering is smooth and light.
Grip (dry & wet): Excellent - no complaints.
Steering: Excellent - steering feels heavy but communicative.
Fuel: Good - Not a fuel economy tyre, but not enough worse to bother me.
Noise: Excellent - Tyres are super silent.
Ride: Fairly firm, taut and very well damped. Not bouncy or crashy. Overall very pleased.
Wear: Superb
Overall: Excellent - in terms of grip, feedback, wet weather performance and comfort/quietness. Very good tyre in all section, vary confortable. Seriously quiet and look good too. Highly recommended.

I have had my car now since August 2005 and in that time I have tried Continental, Dunlop and now Goodyear. My driving style is consistent so it's fairly easy to judge the impact of difference tyres. Overall I have to say I'm disappointed with the Goodyears. Until May last year I had stuck with Dunlop SP Sport 01 for about six years and convinced myself to go for the Goodyears based on the new labelling system, price and overall reviews. The Dunlop was also an 'old' tyre. Unfortunately the Goodyears are too soft for my car. The handling in nowhere near as sharp as with the Dunlops. With the soft tyre walls, you can see the car wobble on the tyres even when shutting the doors. I can only assume this flex is also responsible for the very quick wear rate on the front tyres compared with the Dunlops. Having said this, the rears look hardly used. On the plus side, the ride comfort and noise levels have improved with the Goodyears. I am very glad that it's been a mild winter so far. The Dunlops got me through two of the hardest and coldest winters on record recently and didn't let me down once despite constant snow on hilly terrain, and temperatures down to -15C on bad days. I would hate to put the Goodyears through the same test.
