I'm curious to see what tires Audi is sending over on US-bound A5s. Could all the new A5 owners post the brand and model of their OEM tires, as well as which wheel (18" 5-spoke or 19" Y-spoke) you selected?

Disclaimer: I don't mean to exclude our overseas friends, but it's clear that they often get different specs on their cars than we do. In a previous tire (tyre) thread, the UK folks were all talking about getting Dunlops and Michelins, while the only US A5 I know about yet came with Pirellis. No mention of any UK cars coming with Pirellis. So there are obviously some differences.

Also include whether your car is A5 or S-line

Folks should ALSO specify if they have the regular A5 or the S-line. From posts I've read so far for U.S. spec A5's, it appears Pirelli tires (not sure which model) come with the regular A5 with 18" wheels, while the Dunlop "SP Sport Maxx GT" comes with S-line's that have optional 19" wheels.

So, I'd be interested to know if a regular A5 (non S-line) with the optional 19" wheels also gets the Dunlop "SP Sport Maxx GT" tires.

Regular A5 with optional 19" wheels

Picked up my A5 (non S-line) this afternoon. I got the optional 19" wheels and they came with the Dunlop "SP Sport Maxx GT" tires. So, it appears those are the tires that will come with U.S. spec A5s on 19" wheels, regardless of whether or not it is an S-line.
