quote:pscholte, I've heard some folks complain that Pirellis are hard to balance, which could explain your problem. Check out some of the user comments on your particular tire at www.tirerack.com. Good luck. If you decide to replace the Pirellis, I just bought some Bridgestone G009s and they are awesome. Great in rain, dry or snow so I highly recommend them.
Originally posted by pscholte: I have had my A6 in to the dealer about 6 times for high speed vibration with Pirelli P6s and 17" wheels. Only one time has he gotten the vibration out. Anyone else have a problem with this combo?

They study the cars and even buy them from the insurance companies if they are totaled. They strive to make cars safer by studying real life collisions, not just the ones set up for Federal safety regs. Some companies (like Saab) have their interests focused on the consumer and not solely on profits.
I always wondered why SAAB would care about a car that shook at twice the legal freeway speed limit and why the engineer would risk his license to figure it out.
