Default Tires are chewed up




Anyone help me out? Not sure whatís going on but tires are pretty chewed up. Alignment is good Iím assuming since the car drives pretty straight with no pulling to either side. Is this a manufacturer defect? These are the original run flats that came with the car. All 4 corners look like this. Has about 35xxx miles on it. TIA

I'm guessing they're Goodyears, many discussions about this issue as shown in the above post..

I had a set of Goodyear Comfort treads that had the chunking defect identical to these photos but they were not installed on an Audi.
The tires were prorated and replaced with a different brand with about 10k miles on the set of 4, 2 years ago.
I elected Continental as a alternate brand.
IMO this is a serious manufacturing defect in the Goodyear brand.

Yes, these are the OEM Goodyear Run Flats. I started looking through the posted links and it does look like a manufacturers defect. With a little over 35k miles on them what are the chances that the dealer/Goodyear replace them?

35k miles on a truck? Be happy and just replace them with a better brand.

We've put about 5100 miles since January on our GY RFs and there doesn't seem to be any odd wearing. I may have to look in better lighting but it doesn't look like what's shown in the pictures.
