Best new tires?

Post by verttigoRS » Tue Nov 28, 2017 9:04 pm

Hi i am new here and i am in my first RS, a red 2011 RS5.

I am looking for some info about the best tires i can fit into the car. I am currently running stock sized 275/30 20s. The ride is a little bit harsh so i am studying some changes.

First i want to know if the 265/30, 265/65 or 275/35 sizes are compatible with the car, or if i can have some problems of tires brushing or rubbing inside the wheelarches.
And if this sizes offer some improvement in comfort.

And how about the differences between Michelin Pilot Sport and P zero, which one you guys think is the best tire?

Does anyone have some info regarding this doubts?

Thanks in advance!

Get the MPS 4’s
Pirelli will be half as effective, worst tyre i ever had on my rs4

Totally agree on Michelin Pilot Sports. First choice for me always. Had Pirelli's on RS4 and took them off with loads of tread on them. Also had Pirelli's on previous car and weren't good either. Definitely not in same league as Michelins.

In my views, I will personally suggest Michelin sports as already told by Cocovs6 just above. And I think everyone will agree that Michelin is the most used in most of the Car brands.

I am a tyre retailer and I can honestly say the Michelin PS4S is by far the best all round tyre by a country mile. Just darn expensive.
Used the mich's on various occasions and find the predicable in all conditions. Very progressive at the limit and will give you a heads up before letting go.
