    How often should you rotate your tires on a A4 quattro, put four new pirelli's on at the MOT a few thousand miles ago and how many miles should I cover before rotating them.

    I would not bother, I always leave the tires with most meat on the rear. I would only swap them around when the fronts need changing.

    never bothered.
    if the are wearing at such an uneven rate to be noticeable then you either
    a) have an alignment/tyre pressue issue
    or
    b) just aren't driving it hard enough! : )

    I'm with B5NUT.

    Ye you can rotate them round etc, but personally, i find that if you just leave them be, the fronts wear out first, then you move the rears forward and fit the new tyres to the back. This means you shouldnt have to shell out for 4 tyres all at once again, and by having the more grippy tyres on the rear, keeps the handling nicely balanced.
