Hi,

I need a couple of front tyres to replace some Audi spec Bridgestones fitted by the previous owner, god only knows why?!

I’ve already fitted PS2 N rated rears last year but looking at options for fronts.

Obviously I can get PS2 N rated to match but I’ve seen a few people fitting PS4s instead? Does anyone really care about the N rating or is it a bit of a con as they are always more expensive than the non N rated equivalent, something like £50-60 a pair in this case.

I’m assuming a PS4 is technically a ‘better’ tyre being a newer design?

Any thoughts or opinions welcome 👍🏻

Cheers

Nick

N rating is a con to enable German tyre manufacturers to make more money.
