    2006 A3 2.0 TDI Quattro Sportback rear tyre wear

    Hi all,

    New here and I come with a problem

    got an A3 that has worn out it off side rear tyre inner edge stupidly fast..... about 4mm in two months!!

    It has taken a 4mm tread depth tyre from the front of the car down the the cords on the inside edge in about 2 months, any ideas what this will be

    I already know about looking at alignment etc but do these cars have adjustable rears or not?

    also could it be possible a bush is warn and so making the wheel sit wrong?

    any info or suggestions greatly appreciated,

    check that you don't have a broken coil spring on that side, common for the pig tails to snap on springs which would put your alignment out.
