Under no circumstances. these vehicles are designed to run in sync with the calibrated tire size, different tire sizes will cause damage to the all wheel drive system. further, it is also recommended that you run the same tire model on all 4 corners as well, so as to provide equal readings. 2 different tire manufacturers, even if they are the exact same size, will have slightly different dimensions.

Front wheel shakes while braking


Several possibilities. Try stopping the car with the parking brake and see if you notice as much shimmy. While loose tie rod ends can cause problems, it sounds more like the rotors may need resurfacing. A worn wheel bearing could cause a problem. Jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and see if you can move the wheel back and forth. Loose tie rod ends would also show up with this test.

Do all four tires on a 2002 audi a4 quattro have to have the same amount of tred to run correctly


Yes and No. An all wheel drive car has limited slip differentials , so exact tire size is not as crucial as on a 4X4 truck with locking diffs....
However , it would be best if the tires were at least close.

1989 Audi 90 Quattro problem


Try changing the fuel filter, first. If that does not work try replacing the pump. Also make sure you run 91 or higher octane.

2001 Audi A4 - Knocking in the front end while braking


Providing that the c/v joints are in good condition, the dealers diagnosis sounds reasonable. However, changing two tires may not solve the problem. In reality the rolling circumference of all four tires must match. Mating two new tires to two partially worn tires may get you closer but still not where you should be.
In four wheel drive vehicles, this situation becomes more critical because the transfer case cannot operate properly when front tires are going at a different speed than the rear ones. This can cause the t case to fail (far worse than your problem) Owners of 4x4's generally change all four tires even getting down to matching production lot #s when possible to ensure exact diameter match up. Tire sizes also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer same #s are not always the same size! Therefore using two tires of a different brand can cause a problem as well.
I haven't "cured" anything, but I hope this gives you a better understanding of what you are dealing with.
good luck.

92 Audi Avant 17" tire size


as a rule of thumb every inch bigger you go, you want to go 10% lower on the aspect ratio. so the 195/65/15 will be 195/45/17 and the 205/60/15 will be 205/40/17. the 205/40/17 are a lot more common there for a wider selection and lower price. Good Luck
