I've just had a new rear tyre fitted and I was assured that it didn't need balancing. I know that this is fine on FWD cars but I'd like to know if all wheels should be balanced on a Quattro. As the Quattro is 4WD I'm just a little worried that an unbalanced rear wheel could damage the drivetrain. All the tyres were almost new and of the same make and tread pattern. I did have trouble getting a new tyre to match as no local dealers stocked them (Kenda Kaiser) but I eventually got a great deal on Ebay.
Anyway if anyone has info on the balancing worry I would appreciate it.
