Based on my older model A4 back home, 225 width should not be a problem at all. Go to VWVortex.com and you'll see much more info on widths possible on these audis.

Thanks iraghava & 71convertible. I was quite sure about the tyre width - but still wanted to be sure.

Any idea of the price on the YOKOHAMA ES501 & Michelin PP2 ??


Thanks

Thanks Ishaan. Got a quote for 225/50/16 Michelin PP2 @ 8400/- per tyre. Buy back price of the Pilot Primacy 205/55/16 @ 4500/- per tyre. Is that the correct buy back rate ? Considering the tyres have run about 100 kms in all (registration number awaited)


Cheers

The Tyre Plaza is offering the same buy back but a higher price for the new tyre :-( Do you happen to know of any place in Gurgaon ?? As the warehouse is in Manesar, Gurgaon. There ought to be dealers here as well...

Thanks

MICHELIN will be around 8600 for PP2 performance orientation.
YOKO will around 7800 for Decible comfort orientation.
BS does not have one.


There are shops in Gurgaon on old Delhi gurgaon road near Karim's.

Well !! Checked out the Gurgaon dealer. He was talking of some higher sales tax / VAT in Gurgaon so he can give me the tyre for 9k vs 8.4k in Delhi. As for the VAT I thought it was uniform now in Delhi & Gurgaon. Gonna deciede today hopefully.

Cheers
