    am ok to rotate the front and back tyres?
    i have a noise that comes in at around 70mph. Audi dealer thinks it possibly alignment as i have uneven tyre wear. the car was service in early december with the same uneven wear but the noise was not present then. a front wheel bearing has been replaced today under warranty but i think something else is still wrong. thank in advance :thumbsup:

    I would say it's fine for you to rotate your tyres. They go round everytime you drive anyway.

    depends if the tyre wear has got worse since being re-aligned? (i.e is it still wearing unevenly?)
