    In '04, bought my wife an '01 A6 with the twin turbo V6. Loved that car, absolute blast to drive, especially in the mountains, should have bought it for myself though, she hit every curb with it. The downside to Audi's, once out of warranty, its $2,500 to $3,500 in repairs annually. Sadly, it gave its life for her, wife had a seizure while driving it, went off the road and hit a telephone pole, destroyed the right front, since it was 13 yrs old, the insurance totaled it.

    The wife's ride has a set of Michelin LTX all-seasons that have been great in the snow. This year however, they reached a wear level that makes driving in the snow a little too sporty for her taste. Picked her up a set of barely used Nokian Hakkapeliittas and wheels for dirt cheap from FB Marketplace. All I can say is, wow. They are almost dangerous. The grip they have on snowy roads make you feel like you're driving on dry pavement. I had a set of them 15-20 years ago and didn't think it was possible for a winter tire to be any better. I was wrong. Now I want a set for my Audi...

    Put a set of Hakka 9 studded on my wife's Buick sedan for the winter, like driving on rails

    How are they on wet/dry pavement? How noisy are they?

    There's a guy near me with a set of them for sale that would fit my Audi. Only used a few thousand miles and he only wants $325 for them.

    I know they'd be incredible on snow or ice, but I make a lot of 600+ mile road trips from Indiana to Virginia. Even in a worst case scenario, the vast majority of the roads I drive on would be clear or just wet.

    If they weren't studded, I'd have snatched them up in a heartbeat.

    They are noisy on dry, and it’s noticeable, on wet they worked just fine, the one issue would be how long they would last. I know they are speed rated, but being a snow tire they are softer compound, so depending on miles driven, you might only get a couple years out of them.
