All weather tyres for Q7

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone say why the Q7 ships with all weather Pirelli Scorpion tyres in the US straight from the factory, but in the UK they ship with Goodyear Eagle that have no grip whatsoever in the winter?

Anyone know if you can order all weather tyres for the Q7 as a factory option in the same way you can for the all road?

It will be a legal requirement in certain states that winter or all season tyres must be fitted in the winter months, so Audi supply the cars with all season tyres, it's not a requirement in the UK, or even necessary in most of the country.

Tipex is right its like in Germany and most other European you have to have matching tyres on each axle and have to have a spare set of winter tyres by law.

But its also about the contracts they with have with certain manufactureres who make OE tyres for the vehicle

For example the US factory will have a contract with Pireli and the UK with Goodyear for OE's.

Because you don't get proper winters in Warwick. At least not compared with the northern half of the US.

I can't help thinking that fitting all weather tyres to a Q7 would be a bit like installing a handling kit on a cross channel ferry. :P
