This in from the Audi S4 list:

-----
For those who are somehow obsessed with unsprung weight reduction. More
specifically rotating mass weight reduction.  Following are just tire
weight comparison from several tires I compile from each corresponding
web sites:

Tire weight in lb.

Size           S-02 P.Pos.  SP-9000  SP-8000   Proxes T1-S       RE-71

225/50-16           24        23.4     26        22.7            26.0
245/45-16           24        25.1     26.5      21.6            26.0
225/45-17           24        22.5     n.a.      20.9            30.0
245/40-17           26        23.9     n.a.      22.3            25.0
245/40-18           27        24.8     24.9      24.0            n.a.
275/35-18           30        27.2     26.5      25.6            n.a.

In general the Toyo T1-S are always the lightest.

Notice that in the 245/45-16 size the Toyo Proxes T1-S is by far the
lightest.

Anybody tried this particular tire in UrS4/S6 stock wheel?

92 S4
96 993 Turbo
