Okay, a bit off the normal straight and narrow, I have bought an Audi A4 Turbo and I am looking for advice on wheels. TThis thing weights about 1.6 tons, so about 166 weight.

I'm torn between Conti Sport Contact 2s and Goodyear Eagle GSD3s. Both W rated. I've had Z rated Eagles before on a 156 Sele and they only lasted 6K on the front.

Any views from drivers of big heavy cars like 166s, or other brands?

I'd go with the GSD3s. The Conti Sport Contact 2s were rather hastily superceeded with the 3s after it was found the 2s really didn't perform anything like as well as they should. That is not just my opinion, I read that in a trade/tyre magazine and quotes from Continental's marketing department were included. They may not be bad on your car, I know people who rate them, but they apparently did not fullfill the design criteria once out in the field.:rolleyes:
