I checked the rear offside tyre which had been down on pressure a couple of weeks ago and it was slightly soft. Repressurised everything was good. This tyre was soft a couple of weeks ago so must have a very slow puncture. As the tyres were checked on service on Friday it must be a very slight leak. Both rear tyres last week at service were deemed to be a little low on tread -scuffed on inside of both rears and N/S down to 3mm in middle and rear o/s 3.9mm in middle. since then I have covered a further 600 miles. I visited my local tyre guru who quoted £400 to replace rears like for like (Dunlop Sport Maxx). That would mean in a couple of months ( 4,000 miles) ,when the fronts needed changing another £400 to keep everything matched. total £800. He priced a few others and came up with the Michelin Primacy 4 which is a new model at £650 for four. In addition there is an offer with Michelin where they put £50 on a prepaid visa card for you if you buy 4 tyres bringing the cost down to £600. He reckons the new Primacy is a great tyre and is' A 'rated for wet grip. On that basis I have ordered a set as the Dunlops are original and have now covered 30,500 miles so I can't complain. Will keep you updated when fitted as to their performance.
fredsmith posted a topic in Wheels & TyresMay I trouble one of the experts for some advice please? Exactly 4 years I bought a set of 5 winter tyres for my IS 250. The car was new, and in error, I didn’t realise that the spare in the boot wasn’t a standard wheel/tyre as I’d had on previous cars. So anyway, I’ve had this unused spare for 4 years, and as I now need a new set of winter tyres I’m wondering if I can use the spare and just buy 3 to make up the numbers. I have read that tyres deteriorate with age, but should a 4 year old still be OK? It’s been sitting undisturbed in an indoor cellar for 4 years, kept cool and dry and in the dark for all that time. It’s a high quality Dunlop. Can’t recall the exact product but it was at the higher end of the range. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance. Fred
