    I seem to be getting weird tyre wear on my A4. The front left tyre has worn more (across the whole tyre - maybe a touch more on the outside) than the front right.

    The front right has about 6mm left the front left has about 4mm left.

    The front right had a leaking valve but I got this fixed 2-3 weeks ago and it's been fine since. Tyre pressures are at 33 psi all round.

    The car is on oem SE suspension (covered 92k), the original 16" wheels and Michelin Primacy HP tyres all round. All 4 tyres were fitted at the same time.

    Any pointers to what could be causing this or is it nothing to worry about?

    Get your tracking realigned ans should tell you if it's out?

    Yeah I agree as above, if you have vibration through the wheel too have them balanced as that will probably cause some sort of uneven wear.

    Sounds like too much toe in on front left. Or you love throwing it round roundabouts!! :racer:

    Yeah it does get thrown around roundabouts which would explain the slight wear on the outside. I forgot that its got it's MOT on friday so i'll get the bushes etc checked then. Will get it booked in for 4 wheel alignment too. Would an RS4 RARB stop some of the wear on the outside of the tyres when cornering? Being an SE the cornering is a bit 'squidgy'
