There's a couple of us on the list running them. I'm on my second set, first
set was 16", current set 17".

I've run Dunlop SP9000s, Kumho 712s and a variety of other tires on my Audi.

The T1s is by far the best overall tire I've driven for this car...while it
doesn't have quite the quick response of the Kumho, it certainly does have
the same overall grip or better. In addition, it is *far* lighter than the
Kumho...and most other tires, and this translates into significantly better
ride. The Kumho was just too stiff...I couldn't use a 17" wheel on my car
with the Kumho and sold my set of Kumho/OZ was that bad.

Very stable at speed, great overall tire.

I'm thinking about putting a set on my wife's car when her Dunlop SP9000s go

'95.5 S6 avant
'96 A6 quattro avant
