Default Any Audi A8 owners?

How many set of tires have you gone through....how many miles per set of tires?

Anyone hear anything about these cars going through tires?

Thanks,

Stu

Well that's what I'm trying to find out.

I'm going through a set of OEM tires every 12k miles.

Who the hell is this guy? Yes they are free, that's what is meant when I say they keep replacing them.

Either you have some insight into my issue about the A8 or you don't, if not, keep your ignorant coments where they belong man.

so you're getting your tires replaced for free. i fail to see the problem here. what does it matter how many miles you get out of them if the stealership is footing the bill?

Well it would be just like this dealer to simply replace the tires while the warranty is good than overhaul the AWD like I want them to do.

I don't have an issue with the tires being replaced but I do want to know what's causing it.
