All these hankook tyres are cracked both inner and outer edges, i personally think they are just crap, im thinking of going Bridgestone or something with a good make.My old Q3 had Nokian all weather tyres and my new Q3 has Hankook summer tyres. Tyres come down to personal preference, the car characteristics and the way that the car is driven. I would recommend Nokian but they are noisier than other manufacturers. I can't tell you about the Hankook's as I've only done 140 miles in the new Q3. However, I would recommend using tyre black on the tyres outside walls every time you wash the car as it stops the tyres from cracking.
Michelin Cross Climate. Only covered about 2K so far but really pleased with grip, comfort and noise. Worth a look.Due to all tyres cracking, im thinking of replacing all 4 on the quattro.... Something thats going to last, hankook are on at the moment, ive been thinking of Bridgestone or something good, size is 235/50/18
