    Wondering if anyone would be interested in buying? OEM Hankook Ventus Evo 2 255/35/19 tires with 85 miles taken off a new car. Will add the pictures when I get them.

    Around here, instead of "summer tires" and "winter tires," we just call them "tires."

    Because you have only one season!

    Where I am some folks with high performance cars run summer tires (May-October) and winter tires (November -April). Most sane folks use Ultra High Performance All Season.

    Audi in their strange German wisdom only offers Summer Tires with their 19" rim option!

    David indeed knows that....and in his puckish sense of humor was
    poking fun with his One Season Lifestyle....he grew up in Missouri.

    Audi always has done things a bit different at times.

    Tire Technology has real Come along way from Uniroyal tiger paws,
    Mickey Thompson, TA radials, Blue streaks that weren't DOT legal
    to thick bias Ply M&S. Thank gawd

    We have what are called all season but what sane people call three season and winter (with a spectrum of best on ice to best on snow).

    Ran my winters all summer as they were at the winter wear bars in the spring. Could probably run them 2 more summers but not worth the multiple rim swaps so I just got them replaced. Could get three in the trunk on the way there, couldn't on the way back

    If you are at the winter wear bars, you have essentially worn off the hydrophilic rubber that makes winter tires stick on ice and snow. At that point they just become some pretty sloppy handling summer tires because the sidewalls are not as stiff, reducing your ability to corner harder. I used Blizzaks on all of my rear wheel drive cars for years. With the AWD, i use an all season tire which is ok in the snow but nowhere near as good as the Blizzaks.

    The problem we have had over the past few years is the 70 degree days in February. I know, good problem. Bad problem for winter tires because the tread is so soft, you can go through a set really quickly.
