    What did you do to your MK7 today?

    Currently considering replacing this tire. Rear Right. I wonder if this type of wear is abnormal, I'm not the best at timely rotating my tires and I do have the 1.5 inch lift with Alltrack springs (rear only). Picture attached is touched up a bit to enhance the details. It seems like some...
