    Tires

    So Iím sorry if this has been covered before but my tires have no life left on them. I have covered 14k on them my 2018 s4. Now I was going to order some pilot sport 4s for it. But.. my husband has told me to look into potenza S007A he drives an m4 and said the m owners love them. We put the PS4s on our gtr so I know I like them. Whatís ur thoughts on the bridgestones ? Thanks!

    Ouch was hoping to get more life then that out of the OEM Continentals but I've seen multiple people in the 15k range looking for replacements.


    I can't comment on the Potenza's although I'm sure they are a great tire. I had the Pilot Super Sports before the 4s were available on my wife's S3. They were a fantastic tire on both dry and wet pavement. They road significantly better then the Continentals that came off ( they were well worn so that could be it too) and were significantly quitter as well. An all around superb tire that could outgrip what I could ever do on public roads.


    The main reason I went with the Michelin's was the 30k mile warranty. I thought we were going to keep that car for awhile but low and behold we got rid of it a few months later to get her S4.

    I just looked at the price of the Potenza's and was shocked to see them $75 a tire cheaper then the Michelin's. I would still vote for the 4s as all the reviews have been very positive and my impression with them (PSS) has also been very good. Can't beat their warranty either.

    Side note my sister and her family used to live in Cinco Ranch but moved out to Fulshear a few years back. Katy was a fun place that I enjoyed when I would visit them.

    Thankyou! Where have you looked at the price of them? So far I have found Costco to be the best overall I believe! I know I can get Pirelli ps3s too for less in price too. Maybe they will be better if they will last longer! I have hankooks on there now that weíre on it from the factory ! They were shocking! They are so worn that itís not much fun to drive right now so itís been sat in the garage a lot!

    What a small world .. We actually live on the edge of Fulsher now too so probably not too far from your sister !

    I actually went with pilot sport a/s 3+ as I have killed my current tires in 14k just driving around town. After a lot of research I figured as Iím not tracking the s4 they would be good and hopefully get more life in them! So far Iíve been really happy with them!

    Got 8,500 miles out of the Hankook's and switched to the same Pilot Sport A/S (purchased from CostCo) for the upcoming winter.

    TireRack classifies the Potenza S007A as a "Extreme Performance" tire which is above the "Max Performance" category of the PS4S. The threadwear is 240 (S007A) vs 300 (PS4S) which means the PS4S should in theory last a little longer depending on driving habits. The S007A's are $200 vs $275 for the PS4S or $300 less expensive for a set of 245/35/19. Now you have me thinking about my next set of summer tires when I get a new set of wheels, was set on the PS4S.

    The S007A look like a good tire and they cost less... I know a lot of the guys with the ms are really happy with them! Still interested to hear how they run on the Audiís
