Audi A4 B5 1,8T Sport Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Hankook Ventus Prime2 given 87% (205-55-16-V)
Driving on mostly town for 2000 spirited miles
These are fantastic tyres, on my car I had 2 fairly new Pirelli P7 and 2 worn out no brand ditch finders, I tried the Pirellis on the front with 6mm of tread and was unimpressed, as with most Pirelli tyres it felt vague and bumpy. I was happy to try these as they are OEM on VW Golf, Mini Cooper S etc so I felt they would work well on my Audi, I wasnt let down. Huge wet weather grip, standing water is shrugged off and the sheer grip is very impressive. They are also pretty quiet and smooth too, although my car isnt the softest riding in the world anyway. It refuses to understeer even when driving far too fast (!). It really is time all the tyre snobs realised that big European names are being put to shame in performance and price by the Koreans, much like the cars they are fitted too!

Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 average miles
Added 4 of these to my audi a4 quattro sport 1.8 turbo. Bought oct 11. 1st winter was great in the snow did a pretty good job condsidering. 2nd winter after 12k miles approx still had reasonable grip.
Nearly 2 years on the tyres are starting crack / perish in the water channels fronts are edging to the twi rears are holding out pretty well apart from the cracking.
Good grip in the wet and dry copes well with mud and snow
Would buy again

Driving on mostly country roads for 100 average miles
These were fitted to the car when I bought it as the previous ones were on the limit and the dealer said he would fit two new ones. I thought I was getting a good deal until I drove on them. The car sounded completely different and sounded like I was driving on corrugated roofing. A terrible noise. The steering had less feel and when it rained a few days after getting the car that was it for me. The car understeered quite considerably even at low/average speeds on rural roads I was on; you didn't have to be pushing it to realise these tyres are appalling cheap, nasty rubbish. There is no way I would trust these tyres on the motorway. After 1 week and about 110 miles I got them replaced with some Goodyear Eagles and now it feels like the car I test drove. Read the reviews on here and I can understand why people call them 'death-traps'.
