    Damaged a tyre recently and so being a quattro have to replace 2 tyres on the same axle which is annoying as its only 6k since i put the tyres on. but i guess you have to take the rough with the smooth of owning a quattro.

    Anyway...was wondering if anyone uses different tyres front and back?

    I'm guessing it shouldn't matter as the tyres will be of different grip front and back when i replace two.

    Its actually more a thought than something i'll do in reality but was just wondering.....?

    BTW - i'm IanL-S3 from the old days! :)

    it wont matter if the back two are different from the front 2. the only difference is that you know where you are with the same tyre all round. if you had poor tyres at the back and good at the front, it would obviously provoke oversteer, and vice versa
