    Were they new 5mths ago? How many miles have you got out of them?

    Your alignment is likely to be out, get it checked out first before you get new tyres.

    Don't go for cheapy budget tyres, you need to go for goodyears, conti's etc. Barum are cheap and nasty.

    Tracking on the Quattros is always prone to slipping out of alignment,and a look through my thread will show you how far mine drifted over about 6 months.
