If you still have the tyre you will be able to feel a difference rubbing your hand across the tread....from inside to outside you will feel a "sharpness" to the edges of the tread whereas rubbing your hand from the outside to the inside of the tread it will feel smooth.
Or it could be something totally different, though I can't imagine what except some weird production fault that gave a tyre with a much softer compound.
Thanks for the info guys!!

I still have the tyres as I was going to drop them off with the dealership at the same time as dropping the car off with them.

Having checked the tyres - it does feel a little sharper going from inside to outside but I would be lying if I said it was a massive difference.

Also from looking closely at the tyres - the last block of tread on the inside probably has a little (0.5mm) more tread left than the rest of the tyre if that helps at all?
