Audi A8 D2 4.2 quattro Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 given 87% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on mostly town for 1800 spirited miles
Living in a tropical city with lot of heavy rain storms, I wanted tyres with good handling on the wet and that could last about 20-25,000 km
So far I have not been disappointed:
- Dry handling is great, never lost traction, never felt I reached the limit of the tyres' grip
- Wet handling is very good as long as the volume of water on the road is not excessive. I felt little tendency to aquaplaning when had a fair amount of water on the road (1+ cm) so this is totally expected
- After 2,600 km I can say that the wear is really regular and should last the number of km I planned
- When I fitted them, the car became much more quiet
- Steering wheel respond is good. Of course you cannot ask a car of 1,750 kg to respond like a small sports car but the car always went were I wanted the way I wanted without effort
- Well priced compared to competitors (at least in my region)

All in all, a very good surprise and I highly recommend those tyres

Writing about the Barum Bravuris 3 given 87% (240-45-18-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20000 average miles
I have used Baruns for the last 60,000 miles on an Audi A8 4.2 quattro ,which replaced Dunlops at half the price and have no regrets. Also on a VW golf R32 mk 4 also 4 wheel drive and a Polo 1.6 estate.. None of these cars is driven at the limit and wear, handling and stopping have all been good enough not to warrant comment.. I have had 2 tyres replaced on the Audi for wall collapse admittedly after some severe pot holes but I do wonder if the walls are a weak spot. Will continue to fit Barums where possible.

A comfortable ride slightly noisy on some surfaces. Excellent grip both wet and dry. Covered 60K on last set of Goodyear tyres. Certainly recommend these tyres.
