Have you not used the car much for quite a while? Does sound odd for the tyre to crack up like that unless it's not been used much.

Used daily for the work commute, the front were replaced at the same time. Cant remember the exact date but they've done 20,000 . I check the tyre pressures once a fortnight. the only thing i can think of is that the other one was just an older tyre in the first place? is there a manufacturer date on them somewhere?

are there any winter tyres anyone would reccomend? i wouldnt usually bother but at the moment I have 2 sets of alloys, perfect refurbed ones (summer set) and some that need refubing, which im gonna have for the winter. just in case.

the snow was dreadful last winter, so wondering if winter tyres would make a big difference ? im thinking i might get a good deal if i buy a full set of winter tyres and 2 new ones for the front atm :shifty:
