    Default Spotting dud NCT's, help

    Having read the threads, just checked mine. One has a number in range listed (1908) , if I'm looking in right place. It also has different tread pattern to others. Can anyone tell from pics if I have a bad one? Dealer denies there ever was a tyre problem.

    Not from the pics. If it's a dud one it will have a "split" accross the tread. Left to right as you look at the tyres in the pic.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Sorry, I meant you cannot tell from your pics, not that they are all good ones. All the bad ones were Solevian and have a tread pattern like the 3 that are the same.

    Ok, saw them, but they aren't the original batch reported. Got to go to dealer tomorrow to get service light reset, they "forgot" in January so I'll taaake on board anything said here then take it up with them. Had several long motorway trips with family onboard, having a bad case of "what if's"
