Hi folks,
Looks like it's time to rotate tyres car is at 8400 miles.
By the way these are Hankook.

They have a different tread pattern to my Hankook's on 20" wheels.

Alright probably mine must be older version.
I think car was built in march 2020.
Those are also 20 inch.

Time to go and get a 4 wheel alignment check too KJ, that's scrubbing a tyre..

Both front tyres are similar.
I am at 33psi all-round.
Was thinking what you just mentioned.

The Audi recommended tyre pressure is 38psi. The scrubbing could have occurred because of the pressure. I am running at 38psi and I have linear wear.

I run 33psi too, single occupancy of the vehicle 99.9% of the time. Actually the useless TPM system shows 32psi, the digital hand-held gauge you chaps recommended last year says 33psi.

38psi is the recommended as standard as they use this pressure to reduce the rolling resistance for emissions testing.
33psi is listed as I think ‘comfort’ or similar with a warning to check handbook.
I’ve always found across VAG group more even tyre wear with lower ‘comfort’ setting especially when not loaded/one up.
Interestingly my 2019 S3 just had standard pressure only listed, guess in it emissions weren’t as important as performance 🤷‍♂️
