Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Permitted Tread Depth - Variance

For all four wheels use only tires of the same construction type, and tread.
Always use tires with the deepest tread depth on the front axle.
Replacing one individual tire is always possible. The vehicle manufacturer recommends at the very least however that the tires are replaced on both sides of the axle.
With sport differential on the rear axle, the vehicle manufacturer recommends always replacing the tires on both sides of the rear axle.

The technical background of the limitations are thermal pressure for the transmission oil due to a large difference in the rolling circumference of the tires.
The Difference Between the Front and Rear Axle, must Not be Greater Than 3 mm.
