I'm somewhat confused by what the manual says about "equality" of
tires in a quattro car.
It says that "All four wheels must always have the same rolling
radius. Different tires may ... damage the All Wheel Drive" - and (in
the same paragraph) - "The proper function of the system is not
affected by unevenly worn tires."
Case in point. I recently nearly lost one tire (deep sidewall cut) -
and put on my spare tire. The difference is 24,000 miles or about
2/16" (3mm). Do I keep on driving like that or do I need to buy all 5
