Anyone have experience with these tires on their S4 or RS4:
Dunlop Direzz Z1 Star Spec
Continental Extreme Contact DW
Ventus V12 Evo K110
Kuhmo Ecasta XS
I've got lightweight OZ Superlegga's and am getting 245 40 18's as replacements. Mainly for daily commute driving (10 minutes each way) and backroad driving, but no track, AX, DE. Northern California is a few weeks of rain, rarely below 40 degrees, and lots of dry weather.
These are all summer tires, but the Conti Extreme Contact DW is new, is very light (22 lbs vs. 27 for Direzza Z1's) and treadwear rating is 340 AA A vs. 140 or 180 for the others. Some mag revies had Conti's doing very well in dry and wet (thus the name "DW"). Thanks for your feedback. (I understand some are "93Y" or "93W" vs. "95 XL" but even at only 18" is appears most are not "95" or "XL" and I do not drive with adults in the car, except wifey once in a while.) Plus, with all my lightweight JHM exhaust, rotors, flywheel, etc. (and wheel reduction to OZ's) I'm probably down around 3550 lbs vs. the stock 3800 lbs.
