2009 Audi A4 Avant: It's Not A Tumor

February 18, 2009

See the problem here? The sidewall of our longterm 2009 Audi A4's front tire has a growth. It's audible too, producing a subtle thubthubthub at low speeds.

It's the result of either a particularly nasty pothole or a parking job gone horribly wrong. In either case, we're parking the A4 until the tire can be replaced.

Tirerack.com lists the A4's Bridgestone RE050A in 245/40/R18 at $239.
