Didn't find too much about this topic on here, but am curious what other owners plans are with it being just a few months away until switching to a cold weather winter/tire setup for those of us in colder climates. I don't see any official option directly from Audi for winter tires on this car.

I live in the northeast and my GT should be in around January (my build with the performance package is coming with summer tires). My commute is about 45 min per day, and during the winter months I am often driving in snow. This car will be my DD.

Because wheel fitment is a bit tricky with this being such a new car, i think for the first season i am just going to throw on some Pirelli P Zero Winters as they come in direct replacement sizes for the OEM staggered tires in the performance package, 245/45R20 front and 285/40R20 rear.

The load ratings are 103 for the front and 108 for the rear, and one of the reviews mentions running it on their Model Y last winter which is similar in weight to the GT (4500 lbs for the Model Y, 5000 lbs for the GT). So it seems we should be OK there.

Hi Snorlax, Yes four (4) Audi alloy rims black with brushed silver face and four (4) Pirelli P Zero Winter tires (2 x 245/45/R20 tires and 2 x 285/40/R20 tires). The total would translate from CAD 4294.76 plus tax to about USA $3,425.00. I checked tire rack.com and seemed like reasonable price from dealer, included one free change and first season storage at no charge.

Good to know that Audi recommends these tires. this probably seals it for me for this winter at least. Provided the car comes in that timeframe... :)

Another alternative is super speed RR07. See pic. Also make sure that your TPMS have temperature sensors.

My dealer quoted me Wheels + Pirelli P-Zero Tires ($4,216 + tax). No storage being offered and I may have to pay a minimal charge to mount. I live in North Jersey.

It seems like these are the only winter tires that fit the stock wheels. I will probably put them on the stock wheels and buy a set of summer wheels/tires later on, since i don't really like the stock ones anyone

Can’t recommend enough to anyone changing to winters

my preferred solution is Michelin Pilot Sport Alpin

I think I need to order from Germany in the UK. Don’t put them in until temperature is always below 11 or 12 degrees C so they don’t wear quickly. Probably another few weeks in UK, they end up staying on the car until March or April.

In use slightly more tyre noise but wet and cold weather performance is an unbelievable improvement

On the motorway in rain rear visibility is reduced due to the increased spray as the water is expelled in higher volumes

Worked with this philosophy on my last two cars, Merc E63S and Audi RS6 c7. Such an improvement in performance over the winter months

For what it's worth, my dealer recommended just putting all seasons on the existing rims for the winter, then see how much you really feel you need summers. I'm getting the RS and he thought you might want to just leave the all seasons on since you're not going hardcore on the performance driving, etc. However, if you do want the summers then you have them too.

He also indicated that if you're leasing you can turn the car in with all seasons on, but not with winters on, so you could always sell the summers if you're ok with the slightly lesser performance tire.

i grew up outside NYC. i live in CT now. realize that winter tires are as much, if not more, about the rubber compound as it is about tread design for snow. all seasons stiffen up, albeit to a lesser extent than summers, under 44F.

The best AWD system in the world does nothing without actual traction.
