Re: Need V8Q Tire & Rim

i think that the quattro system has enough tolerance for different tire
wear, (after all the front tars wear out faster than the rears) as long as
you don't have tires of different sizes.  the front differential is free
so it shouldn't matter.  ABS also has tolerance, and i think the
difference between a new and used tire is negligible.  i've run the v8 on
a worn out spare with absolutely no discernable effect.  it was on a 6X15
wheel too. 

want to play safe, buy 2 new tires and used the one remaining worn tire as
a full size spare.
