Purchase of new tires

At the disposal of our Audi A4 models there is a small choice of the serial sizes of tires. The driver of Audi can choose among the sizes 195/65 R 15, 205/60 R 15 and 205/55 R 16.

Here properties and features of tires of these sizes are described. What combinations of tires and rims are suitable from them for your car, you will find in technical data sheet of the car.

    The standard size 195/65 R 15 very much approaches А4. As to road performance, it is possible to tell almost the same: it is absolutely enough of 195th, including for models with more powerful engines. Advantage: at narrower tires smaller resistance to a kacheniye and is lower noise at rotation. In tires 205/60 R 15 or 205/60 R 16 bribes, first of all, appearance. At more expensive tire in comparison with the 195th hardly bigger service life and insignificantly improved road performance.
    The subsequent re-equipment is interesting to those who goes very smoothly and loves appearance of tires. The tire 205/60 R 15 can be put on the same rims, as well as the 195th. In a different way business is with tires 205/55 R 16: they can be put only on rims of 7 J X 16.

Winter tires

    If on your car there are standard tires 195/65 R 15, that, probably, you can, depending on the district, at sufficient depth of a profile to go and in the winter by summer tires. Worse business is with wide-profile 205th tires. They are more inclined – "rigid" execution of a class V or W is not an exception – to pro-slipping on snow and on ice. In this case hardly it will be possible to avoid acquisition of special winter tires. Among winter tires you have a choice between traditional tires M + S by which it is possible to go with a speed to 160 km/h, and more high-speed tires the every speed to 190 km/h. In cars, which can go with the speed exceeding structurally caused, resolved speed of winter tires (see at the beginning of head), the instruction with data on speed, the most admissible for tires should be located on a control panel. The tire M + S with depth of a profile less than 4 mm is not suitable any more for winter. If, for example, in mountains winter tires, tires M + are ordered to S admit those only if their depth of their profile of at least 4 mm.
