Hi!
I am looking to change all tyres on my Audi A5 2017 190PS FWD. It’s currently sporting some awful Hi-Fly tyres, and I have virtually no grip on the front end when accelerating.
What sort of tyres would be recommended for this vehicle? Do I go for premium or can I get away with mid range?
Thank you!

Mid range : Uniroyal Rainsport or Dunnlop
High end: Michelin / Goodyear / continental

Ran uniroyal as a middle range and deffo the best price And very well rated but Currently on Continental Sport contact 6 and theyre the best tyres I've ever driven on! Pirelli P zero AS are OK not great and not abysmal.

Everyone has different requirements, some prefer extra performance, I prefer safety, comfort and low noise.

Anyway my A5 came with Hankook Ventus v12 evo2 in 255/35 r19. They have a very good grip (but not the best), excellent mpg and are amazingly quiet on motorways. Mid-range priced.

I do prefer All Seasons tires for extra safety in wet/winter. Michelin Cross Climate+ used to be the best and now they have Cross Climate 2 which is even better.

Agreed. I'd add Falken to the mid-range and Vredestein somewhere between the two.

I've never enjoyed Pirellis though.

PS on my old S4 I had Conti Sports fitted (18s) and so I fitted a new set of Contis. I just drove almost 6,000kms in the snow and they were GREAT!!!
