Customer Question

I drive a VW Passat CC 2010 V6 blue motion. The car has done 32000 kms and today was told by VW service the front tyres need replacing this will be the 3rd set. I proceeded with asking why the wear and tear is so frequent and was told because of the weight of the car. Sounds odd. Do you have any advise.

Thanks Derek

Hello.

markthebooler :

I don't think you have a problem with your tyre wear rate.

markthebooler :

You are averaging 10,000 miles which for a car of this weight and power is actually quite good.

markthebooler :

Unless you are getting abnormal wear on one edge of the tyre due to alignment or both outer edges due to incorrect tyre pressures.
