fecked tyre

http://www.markvarleyphoto.co.uk/temp/fecked.jpg
above link to a photo of one of my remould Colway AT's after 1341
mainly road miles.
obviously a faulty tyre, the other 3 bought at the same time are fine,
this one is showing small cracks all over it between the treads which
the other three are not.
The supplier is sending out a replacement should be with me on
wednesday.


Regards.
Mark.

That's remoulds for you.

I'd check the batch number on the tyres, if they're all the same, then
get them to give you 4 new tyres. If one of the batch goes like that,
then the probability of the others going the same way is quite high.

Good reason never to fit remoulds in my opinion. luckily your a good
motorist and check your tires on a regular basis

I've had this problem with Pirellis. It's not entirely down to remoulds you
know.

Re: fecked tyre

That looks seriously dangerous. I shudder to think what could have happened.

worst case scenario would be a blowout, I've had a couple of those in
the past, not so bad if it's on the back and you're not heavily
loaded. It'd been tricky if the blowout had damaged a break line,
which I've known happen, but the 110 shuttle valve would have left me
with brakes on the other circuit anyway.

Mark.

Best reason I ever saw for sticking clear of re-moulds
