I just replaced the 205-60r14 Michelins that came with my s4 Spider with 195-70r14 Kumho Sense tires. There're both H-rated but the narrower tire has significantly reduced steering effort and better handling all-around. The lower un-sprung weight also makes the car seem quicker, although that might be my imagination. I am really happy with the change though.

An aside, one of my front hub bolts was 80% cracked through and the last piece failed when the wheel was re-installed. Ordered a new front hub bolt from IAP and when it came, it was 6mm too short. Turns out their entire current stock was improperly manufactured so if you are looking for a front hub bolt, make sure to have them check the length before it is shipped since there may be a defective supply out there from whoever the retailers are getting their parts from. The front bolt is supposed to be 58mm from the shoulder (the defective ones are 52mm).
