Just arranged for a single tyre to be fitted at National Tyres - they price match with Tyreshopper so managed to get a good deal. Not the cheapest but certainly worth it considering it got done on the same day.

Just put a set of Conti 5Ps on my C63 and I'm really pleased with them. Not ad much sidewall/rim protection as others but handle/grip really well

I had 5P's on my C63 and they suit that car perfectly - in fact, I reckon they're the best tyre I've ever had.

Thats good to hear. Thanks chaps. The company has confirmed that they WILL be 5P's that they fit to my RS6 wheels. But out of interest - does it say "5P" anywhere on the tyre sidewall so i know for sure they are 5P's when they arrive???
