Take a look at www.mytyres.com i have used them many times and always got a great deal weather it be a TT Bridgestone or a BMW X5 etc. They will send direct to you or to a local nominated fitter. They have a good selection of all season tyres and detailed reviews and reports on each tyre type. There is also blackcircles.com although there website is not as easy to navigate. Good lookCan anybody recommend a good all season tyre to replace the bridgestone duellers on my Q5 size 235/55/19 101w.
there is not a great deal of choice in this size so any guidance would be appreciated.
Why do you think you have an all season tyre? i.e. are they marked on the sidewall with a snowflake or mountain symbol, or marked "M+S" (Mud and Snow).Are these tyre brands all season as i have the duellers on at the moment.
There are winter tires Pirelli SCORPION ICE and SNOW, new model SCORPION™ WINTER and Scorpion Verde All Season 235/55/19Hi all,
Popped back to see if there was a solution to the 19" winter tyre problem. Sadly it seems not.
DCD.........the Verde is a summer tyre. They do a Verde All Season but not in 235/55/R19 101W.
Bizarrely I have just had a call from my Audi garage offering me Pirelli winter tyres in 235/55R19 101W at £250 a tyre. I told them that Pirelli don't make a winter tyre in this size! But they insisted they are Pirelli and supplied by Audi de. So I really don't know what is going on!
The other thing I don't understand is that you can buy a set of 20" wheels and winter tyres. Makes no sense as wider wheels are not good for snow. Better to go down to 17" imho. A set of 17" wheels with winter tyres is about £1500 incl vat.
Might be worth a verification call to Audi UK?
It's not so crucial for me as I don't work any more. So I can wait for the snow to melt. But I plan to move north soon and would like a solution. Ideal for me would be All Season Tyres. Open to suggestions?
There are summer tires SCORPION VERDE ™ and SCORPION VERDE ALL SEASONThe pirelli verde all season is a 105v where as the summer tyre is 101w i would have jumped at the chance to fit the all season verde if these had been on a w rating but this could invalidate the insurance and would not want to take the risk.
Could also get them for £188 a tyre without asking for discount on 4 which i thought was a very good price.
Also my Q5 is an se which has the standard 18 inch wheels and these would have only been a v rating but i got the 19 tyres free of charge because of a fault with the audi configurator.
