    Has anyone been swapping their tyres between front and rear as recommended in the Manual? If so how often? While i am on the topic, how are your tyres wearing? Were they even between inside and outside?

    I'm on a 2.0T and running the 19"s....so not S4 but ...

    I've checked mine a couple of times and the wear has been equal so I've not swapped. I'm about due another check actually. Inside and outside and the same.

    Quite a bit of difference on mine.

    The rear drivers side has the least wear, and the worse is the passenger side front. The difference was 5mm.

    Swapping them diagonally seems to be the thing to do,, if you remember...........

    Aren't they mostly directional tyres fitted though ?

    I'm sure it says in the manual not to do the diagonal swap.

    Not sure TBH. I use pirelli p zero, thinking about it though maybe they did just swap them front to back...?? But diagonally would be the right thing to do.

    "To ensure that the wear is equal on all tyres the wheels should be changed round from time to time according to the system Fig. 1. All the tyres will then last for about the same time."
