Hi I have an Audi A6 3.0 and have had tire/balance, and wheel problems since I purchased vehicle. I am at my wits end. I have 38000 miles on the car. First set of tires all four at 22000 miles were completely shot with steel showing through the sides. Those tires were rotated front to the back early on before having to replace all four. Well as it happens 13,000 later, I didn't rotate the tires this time and my front two tires are completely shot with no tread. They tell me there is nothing wrong with the car. I have complained now to the dealership for two and a half years about the shake and the tire problem. Audi will not deal with the tire problem but send me to a Continental Dealer who doesn't want to get into it with the dealership. Any advice. And yes I am female and they think I don't know anything.

I am having this problem on an Audi A6 02 and am at wits end. What is the mileage you are getting on the tires?

I had an 02' 3.0 and had the original tires up until 47K miles...there was no metal showing through and in fact I had some tread left but didn't want to let leasing co. put new tires on at a ridiculous price so I did it. My tires were Michelin and speaking from experience on other brands of cars I've driven, Michelin tires seem to last longer than any other high quality brand I've ever owned.

I replaced my original tires at ~54K miles. Could have gone a bit longer but winter was approaching. I put original tires on. I have the oil changed every 5K miles and have the tires rotated at the same time. (2001 2.7T w/6-speed)
Alignment was another story. New tires meant time for an alignment and one side of the front end had corrosion that required replacement of tie rods and some other work. I think the work was about $600 before they could do the alignment.

I have 2002 A6 3.0, and I don't have any problem with the tire, I have 32K miles.
I had a 1999 A8 before and it had the tire problem at about 20K miles, and the dealer told me it's the alignment problem to cause the premature wearing of the tire. Finally I had to replace 4 new tires and went back to dealer to get the alignment corrected and had no more problem with the tire since after.

We just experienced the problem with the water puddling on the driver's side and behind. Did you get an answer to your question?
