    Hi,

    I hope someone can help, I have currently got 4 x Michelin Pilot Sport 2's fitted to my S3. The two front tyres were fitted new about 1500 miles ago. The rear two tyres have approx. 5-6 mm of tread remaining, but one of these has a nasty puncture. So I'm planning to replace the damaged tyre with a new Michelin PS2. Before I do this I just wanted to know if there will there be any issues with the quattro system and running two different tyre depths on the same axle.

    I have done a quick search, but could not seem to find the answer. I really don't want to fork out another £270+ for two more tyres!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    quattro only kicks in with the fronts spinning so not 4X4,I would change the pair so even grip but its up to you ultimately Chris
