Audi allroad 4.2 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza S001 given 51% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 17 average miles
I put the Bridgestone S001's on my Audi allroad v8 quattro and they have only lasted 28,000km to the wear indicators.
-Wet and dry grip are excellent
-Ride comfort is very harsh
-Tyres wear very quickly but evenly on the quattro (treadwear rating 280 no surprises).
-I would recommend these tyres for track and street cars who want good grip that don't mind a stiff/harsh ride, poor tyre wear and a high price.

Writing about the Radar Dimax R8 given 40% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 average miles
The car dealer slapped on a new set of these Dimax R8's on the used allroad when I bought it. I live in Oregon (USA) where it rains a lot, and these tires have the worst wet traction of any tire I've had, on any car I have driven since 1983. I bought a set of Pirelli Sottozeroes for winter and each year I'm installing them an extra month early (October instead of Nov.) and leaving them on an extra month later (until May) because I want to avoid driving in the rain on the Dimax for as long as possible. So I only drive on them from June to September and waiting for them to wear out. Unfortunately, they're wearing pretty well (the allroad is a 4300lb monster that eats tires, so after 12,000miles and no crazy wear, it's surprising). The only other good thing I can say about the Dimax R8's is that they ride pretty well (soft) compared to my winters (Sottozeros). However, the Sottozeros are quieter. Bottom line, don't buy Radar Dimax R8 if you have to drive in the rain.
