Even someone as tight as me will always spend money on tyres without pushing my luck - although black circle helps !

Just checked my tyres this afternoon on my 2015 Macan SD on 20” all seasons with 20,700 miles- all four were bang on 5mm which I am pretty happy with. Also got first bit of snow this afternoon with temps at just 1c. Would definitely recommend all seasons .
Which/whose all seasons? If I may enquire... as I was looking for a Porsche N-Rated All Seasons but can only see Summer or Winter options.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts on the Goodyear LS2 tyres, that's hopefully what I'll be fitting to my 19's pretty soon.

Mine also has 19" wheels and is on Good Year Eagle LS2 N0. At 14K miles loads of wear left. IMHO they are very good allrounders at a very reasonable price.

Had a read through this thread with interest as my ‘16 Macan D fos tyre is at the wear limit indicator and odometer reading 15200 miles. Rears are fine.

I purchased the car from an OPC used, 7 months old with 9k on the clock. I’d noticed over the last few months the fos tyre seemed to be wearing evenly but quicker the the opposite side. Im not a fat git so its not a heavy sided weight issue :lol: as per usual the OPC’s were not interested in my observations but now I have had a look around online and the average price of replacing like for like is between £240-£260 for 21” Continental sport contact

Has anyone else had unusual wear? Anyones thoughts on Conti’s, My tyre pressures are checked regularly and the cars seems to track straight

I had a foc tracking / alignment check (yes, that’s not a misprint - genuine foc!) a couple of weeks back and my 15000 mile GTS was on pretty even wear 4’s and 5’s all round (rears a bit thinner than the fronts and the usual outer edge wear on the rears)

Sounds as if you may have started off with marginally unevenly worn fronts (maybe a new tyre due to a puncture with the previous owner?) Ask if you can get a copy of the pre- delivery inspection sheet from when you picked it up. They will have (should have) done a 111 point inspection as it was a used car.
