The best upgrade I ever done on my S3 was to move from crossplys to radials.

First set of radials I had were Colway AT's in 235/85 R16 size, unbelievable road holding compared to the old crossplys.

I'm now running Toyo Open Country MT tires, very similar tread pattern as the Cooper Discoverer stt. I cannot complain at the off-road grip in wet mud/ slop. Also very quiet on the road with good grip.

So for me on the above poll, it's none of them, instead Toyo Open country MT.

I have to plump for the Goodrich tyres.

When I got my ex-military Defender 110 it was fitted with a set of really hard, what I assume to be cheap, strangely cut rubber shoes. These were noisy, even over the sound of the 2.5lt diesel engine, and only seemed to be effective on open, metalled road.

I replaced them with the Goodrich tyres and the immediate difference was in the significantly reduced sound levels. It could just be my improving driving technique, but fuel consumption seems to have improved also.

Hope this helps, but, at the end of the day, I suppose we all buy what we can afford at the time.
