Hmmm.. how much is Goodyear paying you?! ;-)
Does he (you) drive them hard.. like a quattro is supposed to be? I found 
them to be extraordinarily bad in the dry (can spin all 4 tires!!!), 
sh*tty on standing water.. good on braking in the dry though. Poor on 
corners (non progressive.. they just 'go away' instead of slide a bit 
Just what I found. (I drive my tires REALLY hard)
I played with a set of HP22's today on my roomies '86 4000sq. I was 
EXTREMELY impressed. they were incredibly stickey. quiet, cheap! Any one 
else had an experience with these?
