      I just put a new set of Michelins on my 260K A4 which are worth half what the car is :D I gave it a bumper-to-bumper R&R in January so its not going to be giving up any time soon.

      You should be able to buy the sensor ring separately, then just clean up the CV joint with a wire wheel and knock the new one on. You shouldn't need to buy a whole axle just for that :)
