From what i heard Nankangs have good grip but were wearing quite fast in the past but have improved in last 10 years. Thinking of 215/50R17 or 225/50R17 for A6.

I am also considering taking S4 Cab to Bedford Autodrome before selling it if it can pass noise test. So thinking about another set of alloys 18" with Nankang NS2R 235/40R18 semi slick that could potentially be used on either A6 or S8 in the future even if a bit wrong size.
I ran them on my 8 for a while Ainars they were fine. Grip ok both wet and dry lasted ok too, don't remember miles but for the money they are a good choice. I found with part worns if they'd started wearing say on the outside edge they would carry on wearing regardless to toe settings.
1996 A8 4.2 QS. Bose, Solar roof, um...um... rally sport towbar. Now gone to a new home as the Traders 8.

Bright yellow bus o love.
