Mine are Continental Sports (MO) 285x35x21, had to fit a 5mm spacer to fronts but sits really well. Camskill Tyres were 200 ish a couple of months ago now £236.00 inc vat. Got my local tyre co to fit 20.00 per tyre. Really impressed with wet weather performance...

Good wet weather performance is my preferred option

I am leaning toward Avon ZX7. I have fitted before. They get good reviews other Q5 owners particularly quiet and good for wet weather but do not wear well, @ £136 per corner the price is right.

I have had these twice in a row now - Dunlop SportMaxx GT SP Sport Maxx GT - 255/40 R21 102Y XL (RO1) MFS TL Fuel Eff.: E Wet Grip: B
Great wet performance.
R01 for car insurance peace of mind.
Great price last year from Camskill.

Your Avons seem like a bargain!

They do seem too good to miss at £543.40 for 4 off delivered. I have two on at present and they perform well but wear quickly. I find there is a trade off wear versus grip :-(


I am going to fit four while I have my wheels refurbished. A have chosen VW Blue Chrome

I would look at Hankook. Brilliant in the wet and very predictable. I have had their tyres for almost 5 years and I have never had a problem with them. 4*255/40 R20 101Y for £560 fitted and balanced.
