Tire recommendations

I used two sets of Firestone Firehawk LH Touring tires on my 200 Quattro
Avant.  They were absolutely superb in all weather, quiet, and very positive
on our Maine entertaining roads, as well as Interstate traveling.
I changed the first set at around 30,000 miles, as the tires were well past
the half worn point, and since I ran them all year round, the Quattro system
likes to have good, deep tread....gets rather strange acting in heavy sluch
and much less than half worn.

If the car had been in warmer climates, I could have seen about 50,000 all
purpose miles from a set.

Great bang for the buck.  When our current 100 CS Quattro Avant needs tires
next, that is what I will probably get again.
