I recently saw a Touareg on a dealer forecourt which had strange tyre wear. The car was just over a year old and had done 8000 miles. The two offside tyres were barely legal with uneven wear on the rear tyre(less tread on outside edge) . The near side tyres appeared fine. What could be the cause of this uneven wear? I know its common to swap the front tyres with the rear in a front wheel drive car to get more life out of them, but a Touareg is 4WD.

Charlie - the Touareg can suffer from uneven tyre wear - early examples suffered particularly badly, however recently VW have resolved most of the problems. It's caused from a combination of poor tyre choice (by VW and the dealer) plus also poor wheel alignment from the factory

According to my local VW stealer, VW have recently sent out a massive batch of brand new rubber for Touaregs (mine had a complete new set on it after only 5000 miles completely at VW's expense).
