Hi,

I whould like to know if on a Audi Q3, the tires will used more at the front or the back ?

I think the Quattro of our Q3 is FWD, and will use the AWD if needed. Is that correct ?

Or it's always in AWD ?

Thank you :)

Alright, so the best tires should be in front then. Thank you :)
don't think so
but this is a discussion with different opinions.

I believe the best tyres should be on the rear, also with front wheel driven cars.
this will help you to prevent getting oversteer easily, which is more difficult to control than understeer.

when you get into a critical situation, the 1st thing you do, is go off the throttle.
this will make the car ligher on the rear and could give you oversteer.
bettere tyres on the rear mght help you there.
understeer is a lot easier.
if you go off the throttle, the front will become heavier and you might reduce yr understeer.

I realize there will be other opinions, but this is mine :)

Oh alright sounds good.

Actually the front tires are 10/32 and rear tires are 9/32.

Should I switch them for 9/32 front and 10/32 rear ?

don't understand what you mean with 9/32 or 10/32
but if that is a very small difference in profile, I won't not change them.
before you know it yr fronts will be 8/32 :)

Ok alright !! Thanks :)

For the /32 : Useable tread depth is calculated by subtracting 2/32" from the tires' new tread depth. Then usable tread depth is compared to remaining tread depth in order to calculate tread wear percentages.
