Audi S4 Tire Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 given 80% (255-35-19-)
Driving on mostly town for 5000 easy going miles
Got new rims so put on F1A6. Used to run 1 inch less rims and had PS4 and S001. Overall F1A6 feels like the tire for 90% commute and 10% sport. It grips well when driving fast, but the side wall is a bit too soft in harsh turns. When in commute, it is quiet and comfortable, however, sometimes it has this weird resonance at around 110-120km under some particular pave condition (not necessarily old paves, sometimes newly paved road can cause it too), which is very annoying. To me, the problem of this tire is it doesn’t do anything very good and is kind of mediocre for everything. Aqua planning is not as outstanding as some other tire such as PS4. But it is good enough if you don’t live in somewhere rains everyday and have pond everywhere on the road.

Writing about the Hankook Kinergy 4S2 given 45% (245-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
They grip fairly well for an All Season tire and they will be fine for mildly spirited driving. They have quite a light feel to them which doesn't instil confidence as it can be difficult to tell if they are actually gripping or if it's the car's electronics kicking in and saving the day. However, when cornering hard you can feel them start to break away and start to loose grip, giving you a change to correct. Also, when coming out of a corner and accelerating hard you can feel them "lift" so to speak. Basically, losing traction. They are also very noisy on the motorway. I've not had a chance to test them in the snow or ice as it's been a mild winter, nor check the wear rate yet. I'll come back in a year and revise the review. Ultimately, I would say if you drive calmly with the odd bit of moderate spirited driving they are fine and hopefully also provide good traction when the weather gets cold and bad. But if you like to push it hard when the weather is above 7°C then stick with a decent set of summer tires.

Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 spirited miles
Bought these as looking for a do everything tire, watches and read reviews, I’ve done 5000 miles and tbh cannot wait to get rid of them! Whilst around town great during the winter months grippy on the cold tarmac, however give it a dry/wet day on a dual carriageway and the handling is awful, it’s as if the sidewalks are made of jelly any speeds in excess of 55-60mph and particularly on bends the tires really struggle. Appreciate there not summer but these were not what I expected unlike my wife’s Michelin climate + which are perfect, will be changing very soon!

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 given 76% (-35-19-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20000 spirited miles
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 4 tires. Running these on a 2012 Audi S4, all wheel drive car. It's my daily driver / road trip car. Climate is middle of USA. Snow only 5-10 times a year here, usually light snow. Truly 4 seasons. Driven about 20k miles on these tires since 2021. Driving style spirited. The wet handling is really why I love these tires. They are just excellent for a commuter or road trip car when the rain is coming down hard. Snow is fine and suitable to get around a light snow day, but you'll slip around a bit (which I'm fine with) Dry handling is on point for what I need. Very good, but not amazing. Only time they slip is under really hard corning when I'm asking for it. They're expensive, that's a draw back for sure. However, I've been happy with the tire wear so far. Just be sure to do regular rotations. I would definitely buy these again.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 given 96% (255-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 18000 spirited miles
Loved these tires. Transformed the car, way more agile than any 4 AWD saloon car has any right to be. Great turn in and lateral grip, made the car so much more fun to drive. The tires were absolutely abused and had 0 issues. I even got caught out in snow twice, before fitting winters, and they handles it better than I expected them to, but wouldn't make a habbit of using them all year round in Scotland. Would have bought them again if I'd been keeping the car, as I was super impressed with their perfomrance and longevity, even for a Michelin.

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza RE980AS given 43% (255-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
I had the Bridgestones for about 20k miles before they were worn to the way to the legal limit. The initial turn-in was great on dry surfaces for the life of the tire. Felt really planted. As far as the wet, it started great but by about 30% life they got really sketchy. And as far as snow and ice, I would suggest not even trying it. These are as bad as full summer tires in the snow, from my experience. Not that it means much for cornering and braking, but I have quattro AWD and a lot of snow driving experience. So I didn't have issues getting stuck, but if I didn't have that technology it definitely would have. As far as comfort, they are awfully uncomfortable. They feel like squares before they're warm so the car shakes like you're out of alignment for about the first 3mi/5km on days that are not already quite warm. You feel everything on the road even when they're warm. So good for track driving, but not good for a daily driver if though they're labeled as all seasons. At the time of writing this I've recently installed on Michelin A/S 4, and the difference in comfort is quite large. The Michelin is much more comfortable and feels like you're actually driving on rubber, the Bridgestones feel like driving on bricks. Which means the Bridgestones also have much more feedback to what's happening on the road. As far as the noise, they are quite loud. Only got worse over time. Overall, I would not recommend these tires, personally. From my experience they were not suitable for daily driving, and wouldn't be as good as a dedicated summer tire even in the areas the Bridgestones excelled in.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 87% (245-40-18-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 2000 spirited miles
I used to used asymmetric 3. I put on a set of pilot sport 4s however have gone back to the new asymmetric 5. The Michelin was a great tire, looks fantastic and handles beautifully in the dry. But I found the wear was no where near as good as the Goodyear and the wet grip wasn’t quite there either. It aquaplanes a bit more and didn’t give quite as much confidence in the wet as the Goodyear. Therefore as an all rounder I think the Goodyear is the better tire. And the difference in dry grip is small enough that it is out weighed by the Goodyear’s superior wet and all round performance

Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
Fitted to my 2013 Audi S4 on front and rear. Dry handling is great, little understeer on the road although they need to get warm to stick well. Colder and wet weather isn't as good. Still handles fine, but less confidence inspiring. I took it to a track day at Donington Park, where they gripped incredibly well. Track temp was pretty high so wear was intense, and even after a few hours the surface of the tires were still sticky to the touch.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 93% (255-35-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
I've used this on a precious performance car and the grip during downpour is as good as the dry warm summer days. Instant response when turning and comfort is improved. I previously used pilot sport 4 which is also an amazing tire but these bear them marginally and 2/3 the price makes it a no brainer.
