O/S/F tyre has been going down. The chap I usually go to has been too busy so yesterday ended up at the tyre depot in town. Yep found it easily nail through the edge of the tread so not in a repairable place. Typical tyre has about 5mm left on it.
Then the chap points out that it's worn on the inner edge.............................. very unhappy now as I had the Four wheel tracking done less than a year ago and we don't do that many miles. Seems I need to get it checked twice or three times a year due to the dreadful state of our roads.
So it's new tyre time. After the experience of last winters snow and finding out just how awful these Goodrich G-Grips are in snow replacing both fronts is a no brainer. The G-grips were on the car when we bought it. The question was then do we buy a set of Winter tyres of just replace the front two. The rears have done about 7000 miles and are fine.
So after a discussion with "the chancellor" a set of winter tyres it is. Never had winter tyres before so this should be interesting. Due to the prices we have to go fairly "Budget" a premium set as quite frankly around £600 for set fitted is beyond the pockets reach.
£300 is quite enough stretch thank you. It will interesting to see what the alignment check shows.
