Exclamation 2007 Audi A6 3.2 Quattro tires purchasing question

I bought tires for my Audi a6 they're balding out bad after 7000 miles and its the front ones I need to know best reasonable brand for my car I have 17 in wheel and tire size is 245 45 r17 I am not sure but I need to know what specific brand I need and it would be all season tires. The ones I have now are shitty quality.

Go to Tire Rack and the web site will guide you through the process of selecting the proper tire size. You will then have quite a few options and you can read the reviews, the OEM tires were probably Conti Contact Pros. If your tires are bald after 7000 miles I would have the front suspension checked. Something is wrong either with the alignment or with some worn rubber bushings. Be careful about changing only the front. Quattro does not like mismatched tire diameters.

I think it might be the front suspension I do hear a rattle sometimes when I'm Driving on a brick road but it doesn't affect the driving what should I be specifically looking for when checking the suspension ill have it looked at tomorrow

Look for any worn parts. Check the condition of the bushings

Have a shop check your alignment. Are you tires wearing evenly on the contact patch?
