I'm just trying to raise a maintenance budget for the pending Q5 and wonder if anyone has had a quote for 20" tyres?

I have tried my local guy and he said he would have to order them in as a special?

I better make sure they last at that price!

What mileage should you get out of a set with average use? I presume the fronts wear out first even though it is a 4x4 because I think I read that 60% of the power goes to the front wheels.

Yep - Blackcircles.com was the best I could do when I did a "what if" the other day.

As Rich says, ?201 for the Bridgestone D-Sport HPs as fitted OEM on 20".

I am really hoping to get a good 15k out of a set - which means 18 months at current mileage rate.

Hi Windmill

That looks good, thanks for that!

It's always worth shopping around, my local Audi dealer will match Kwik Fit Prices - just waiting for KF to get back to me.

You do have to be careful who you go use though, I once saw a KF fitter trying to smack the rear wheel off a BMW with a 6' scaffold pole - I must have looked shocked
-he just laughed and said they are well rusted on mate! Glad it wasn't my alloys!

Hi Hoggy

Too right! My worst experience was a MB assistance guy that used a hugge mallet that sent the wheel sliding across the Tarmac! These guys are good I have used before.

Very good spot Windmill - that's a near ?400 saving on a full set. The Contis have a higher load rating (105 vs101) Vs the Bridges, not sure if that is good, bad, or irrelevant?

After my experience of Continentals on the RRS I found them to be very soft rubber with a poor wear rate.

Michelins have always been better wearing tyres.

What about Hankook Ventus. Don't know if they do that size but supposed to be very good tyres.

Maintenance contract may be worth considering

Hi
I managed to get a michelin 20" tyre for ?234 I got this as a spare because very few places stock these tyres and I didnt want to wait 3-4 days.
I shopped around as the prices I was quoted from various places the price difference was shocking

I have to agree that Michelins are harder wearing but found that can suffer the performance in the wet. As for costs if you have Continentals at ?156 and they last 10000 miles the Michelins to work out at the same cost per mile based on a price of ?234 would need to do an extra 5,000 to be the same cost. I can't see us getting 50% more miles between Continental and Michelin.

Thoughts?

Good point Windmill.


I tried Macsams for 19" out of curiousty, not that it will be an issue for a very long time. Only gave Michelins as replacements at ?200 ish per tyre.
