i don't know the dot #'s on the tires. first tire i paid for myself. due to many complaints on audiworld.com forums, i purchased road hazard warranty for all tires. second tire would have been covered under road hazard warranty, but there was a national shartage of re040's at this time. i then obtained a used replacement from another s4 owner that already switched to another tire. i'm moving soon, so phone# and address will change. the phone# and address are my parents. my parents should give you my new phone# if needed. mail sent to my parents should also get to me without problem. *ak( dot number: tire size: 245/45 r17 )

after about 25,000 miles of driving the tread on two of my bf goodrich g-force ta kdws tires is separating from the tire. one tire (which was my front left) has two areas of separation and one area just showing signs of starting to separate. the areas of separation are about 4"-6" long and 12"-15" long. pictures can be emailed on request or seen at:http://forums.audiworld.com/wheel/msgs/56770.phtml i called bfgoodrich about this issue and they informed me that they have never had a problem like this before. although, the complaints on your website and on www.tirerack.com seem to indicate this problem has occurred before. bfg is only willing to pro-rate replace the tires if i buy the same tires. after almost having a serious crash in the heavy rain due to the defect in these tires, i would never pay to have them again.

3 of 4 bridgestone potenza re-950 tires, size 235/45/r17 93h tires have experienced delamination of the tread on the inside wear edge; alignment on my audi a4 has been verified to meet manufacturer spec, yet the inside edges of the tires have broken open to expose layers of tire and the integrity of the tire has been breached. in one case, a 8 inch by 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch section completely gave way and flew off the tire. these tires were discontinued by bridgestone and i now know why. i replaced all 4 tires with bridgestone g09's and i have not had this problem reoccur. note, system will not accept audi a4 as vehicle type, so i used toyota; i do have a 3.0l a4 quattro. *jb
