View Full Version : 21" Tyre Choice ??

20-05-2011, 10:06 PM
Any recommendations for tyre replacements for Q7 3.0TDI S-line with 21" alloys.
Size 295-35-ZR21-107Y

Currently Pirelli P-Zero's on the rear that are ok at present and Continental Cross Contacts on the front that are shot but thankfully evenly worn.

My requirements are mainly Performance, Decent Mileage and Low Road Noise.
Obviously tempered by cost.

Don't know if they are original on the front or not so don't know the mileage they have done.

choices are limited at that size. I replaced a set of Dunlops recently that I put 10k on, and they weren't brand new when I got the car. Put the same back on.

Not cheap though!

I've heard others say that the tyre tread cannot be more than 2mm different front to back, otherwise it screws with the quattro. No idea if it's true...

Well I've plumped for Pirelli P-Zero Rosso 295/35R21Y Reinforced 4X4

538.80 fitted and balanced and old tyres removed.
Mobile fitment in my drive two days after order .

Etyres - Will follow up with a comment on service.
