    do you have lots of roundabouts on your journey lol

    weird how its worn well and even and not signs of tracking or suspention damage.


    could be down to the tyres ( although same brand and model) are from different batches and are different grade of rubber or tread depth ??


    broken spring or tracking maybey
    as the inside looks a bit more worn

    As said if you are using a lot of round abouts because of the weight transfer be more on the left side

    They are different tread patterns for sure, so probably one is a softer compound than the other.

    I have to agree, the tread patterns are different
    Offside : 2 ties plus 1 (photo turned upside down and it does not look the same)
    Nearside : 3 ties plus 2 (actually looks like a number 3)
    Please check and compare the specifications, then post what each tyre is

    Could you possibly take another photo of the nearside tyre, facing in the same direction, from the bonnet towards the vehicle?
    That way the direction pattern is the same (arrows and rotation downwards, towards photographer)

    When new, were the tyres fitted to the front, or have they been rotated as the previous front tyres wore out (ie rear to front)?
