Even though I admit to starting 'em once or twice myself, I really
don't like tire threads on the qlists, because they're not Audi
specific and they come up every single season- do the research, even
if to just go to a site like tirerack and look at the ratings there.

That said- if you want an all season biased towards snow performance,
consider the Nokian NRW.  Mark Rosenkrantz, a qclub instructor and
quattro-list member, who happens to sell Nokians, runs the NRWs on
his stock S4 rims in the winter...though I think it was partially
because the Q's and 1's aren't available for stock S4 rims?  Dunno.

Taka has NRWs I think, too...similar reason- 17" wheels, right Taka?
