Not all US bound Audis get crappy Goodyears.  My A4 with sport package gets
very good Dunlop SP8000E's.  What I don't understand is why Audi didn't spec
225/50-16's on 7.5" wide rims instead of the 205/55-16's on 7" wide rims.
225/45-17's would have been even better but I guess they want to save
something for the S4.
