i am reporting a safety problem, not an accident or a parts failure. the car came equipped with high performance tires. they are bridgestone potenza steel belted radials no 225/45 r17. on any snow the car becomes unstable. it will not climb even the slightest grade. stopping is problematical; it slides every which way. i called audi of north america and was told the correction is to buy snow tires. i was given a number of a dunlop tire to fit my rims. it is called a winter sport and costs $750.00 for four tires. it is inconceivable to me that a car is sold in the midwest with the only method of controlling winter driving is to buy an additional set of tires. i could understand someone wanting better traction in the winter doing so, but not just to be able to drive the car on slippery roads. *ak

while travelling at 35-40 mph, i hit a small bump and tire blew, also these tires were sold as an all weather tire, i was assured by several audi sales people that they were and at aproximately 200 miles i had to purchase snow tires as these tires are dangerous in even a light dusting of snow. i purchased michelin alpines for snow, but, have not replaced the bridgestones for normal driving as competitive tires would be at least $800 due to the size and speed rating. *ak( dot number: )
