Mostly Motorways for 3,000 Easy Going milesAudi A6
Have done just 3000 on these in XL format fitted to my Audi A6 C6 3.0Tdi quattro and have to say the are the best tyre I've ever had on any car. Naturally too early to give any indication of wear but from the standpoint of sheer grippiness (?) they are phenomenal.
Good curb protection and quite springy when you have to mount a curb...no bad thing.
Comfort has also vastly improved over my contisportcontact 5 (front) and contisportcontact 3 rears. As they a slightly larger tyre I find that my speedo now reads spot on with my 2 x gps devices...you will normally find that when your speedo reads 70 your actually doing 67 and at 100 (on autobahn natch) you are doing about 95-96.
The downside is that my MPG, on say a 300 mile on a run, has gone down from 54 to 48-50. This will be a due to a more accurate rolling radius and the extra grip the tyres have to offer.
Luckily picked up a brand new set (initially for my Jag XK) for Â£480 so a bit of a bargain...but decided to put them on the Audi instead.
Expect them to last for at least 3yrs as, come Nov, my winter tyres and wheels will go on for 5 months.
