Sounds like the Yoko AVS-Is stick like glue. I had similar experiences with Yokos when I used to own an Acura Integra. For my needs now, however, I think I can get enought dry grip with either the RE71s, the Pilot SX-GTs, or the P6000s, so rain performance plays a role in my decision too. I live in MN and only need the summer tires 6 months a year. Since I have 170K on the Audi, I figure I will only need summer tires another 20K or so before the car is sold/dies. (I am gunning for 200K on the car!)
I see that you use to have the H speed rated Pirellis. The expensive ones I was talking about are Z speed rated. Do you think there is a difference btwn. the two versions of P6000 that I would notice? I got kind of spoiled with my old Z speed rated Continental CZ91s. There were terrific on dry, rain and were quiet to boot. After having these, I don't see why anyone would want to settle for touring tires, unless they want to save a few bucks. But I guess not everyone is as performance oriented as we are. I figure that the only thing holding me on the road are the four contact patches of the tires, so I don't want to get too cheap here!
Thanks again for your help Dan.
