    I wanted Nokian WR all season tires for my 2008 TT 3.2 Quattro Roadster but Nokian doesn’t make a tire equivalent to the stock 245/40/18 All season run flats.
    I asked my local installer if he would put the Nokian 235/40/18 tires on but he declined since he felt that the tires are not close enough in circumference giving different revs/mile and may screw up the gearing on the S-tronic. Audi was non-commital on this as well and said it would “probably be ok” but wouldn’t put it in writing to avoid voiding the warranty. Now I don’t know what to do. I really had my heart set on those Nokians since I don’t want to change to snow tires every season. Nokian does make a true snow tire in the 245/40/18 size but I couldn’t leave them on in the summer.
    Are there any other all season tires that would be adequate in the snow and still not need to be removed with good wear (at least 25 K miles?)
    I was told this car is best not driven in the snow with the stock all season tires and the Nokians are really the only true All season snow rated tires that can be driven on all year round with excellent wear and traction.

    For those of us who have never heard of Nokian Tyres here’s the history:
    Nokian Tyres plc was founded in 1988 and it was listed on the Helsinki (that’s in Finland) Stock Exchange in 1995. The company ’s roots go back all the way to 1898, when Suomen Gummitehdas Oy, or the Finnish rubber factory, was established. Passenger car tyre production began in 1932 and the company ’s best-known brand, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta tyre, was launched in 1936.
