Evening everyone,

This question has probably been asked a million times and id had a go at searching through previous posts but nothing recent or definitive.

Whats are you all using? Why? And how do you find them?

My RS3 8P has Kumho Ecsta Le sports on and are dreadful. Theyre really starting to struggle for traction in a straight line and particularly cornering. I had the Haldex pump and filter changed in March, so i assume it isnt that and must therefore be the tyre.

I believe theyre 235/35 front and 225/35 on the back. Conti Sport Contact 6 are held in high regard on evo magazine etc and £511 for 4 on Asda tyres. So im thinking maybe these.

Any support, opinions and advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

19” x 8J ‘5-arm Rotor’ design titanium finish alloy wheels with 235/35 tyres front and 225/35 tyres rear like in the RS3 Pricing and Specification Guide I sent you.

The 8P RS3 was supplied with Continentals but I changed mine @ 7500 miles to Michelin Super Sports and 235/35 front and rear. The current Michelin equivalent is the Pilot Sport 4S and that has good reports/feedback.

PS next time post in the 8P RS3 section, James, as I missed your question and would have answered a lot earlier, maybe the 5th November even, lol... :readit:

My preferred brand has generally always been Michelin but the S3 came with P Zero and I replaced them like for like a couple of months ago based on decent wear and great rim protection.

My dealership also price matches against Black Circles and Kwikfit for me.
