want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Audi A4

Hi Manoj,

Goodyear excellence would be a good tyre for your Audi A4, to begin with. It offers a very comfortable ride quality and is widely used as an Original Equipment on various luxury vehicles.

Another good option would be Yokohana DNA db ES501 tyre. This tyre is popular for its very quiet and comfortable ride quality along with great handling and traction.

Another good option would be Michelin Primacy 3ST. This tyre offers great comfort, even on rough roads, along with superior grip along and enhanced tyre life- A great value for money option.

In case you want something top of the line, then Pirelli Cinturato P7. This tyre triumphs in all spheres including traction, ride quality, quietness and handling. The tread life on this is pretty good as well.

Regards

Ramit

I m gng to plan to upgrade types for my grand I 10 175/65/R14 82H is there any milage problem please reply me

Hi Pramod,

If you go for a harder compound tyre, you get low rolling resistance. Which means, they are easy to spin at the cost of reduced grip. A softer compound will grip the road well at the cost of slightly reduced fuel efficiency. As the contact patch increases, the same thing happens; you increase grip and fuel efficiency reduces.

There are extremes on both ends of the spectrum; the key is to find a balance.

You've chosen a good tyre size for the upgrade but you could face problems with the increase in the overall diameter of the tyre. The speedometer and the odometer could also be affected. As you increase the width, you'll have to decrease the sidewall. 175/60 R14 will be closer to the stock tyre circumference but because of its weird combination, it's very rare tyre spec and not easy to come by.

I'd advise you to stick with the factory spec and choose a softer tyre to improve the grip and handling. Here are some options:

165/65 R14 Earth 1 is a very quiet tyre with grip levels better than the factory fit tyres.

175/60 R14 Yokohama C Drive is another one to consider for 175-section tyre.
