    Default Oh great!!

    Took my car to national tyres this morning to get the wheels balanced as steering wheel was vibrating like mad on motorway, Im sat in the waiting area expecting a quick 15 min job. Guy comes in and says 'do you want to come and look at this tyre mate' i thought oh great here we go not had the car 2 month yet, the tyre was worn down on inside edge didnt look all that bad to me but he said it had to be replaced and the tracking looked at. going away 2moro for wifes birthday so haven't got time to going searching for good deals on tyres so had no choice but to pay the £160. cars not two years old yet.

    you know its the middle 3/4 of the tyre that has to have tread dont you? the inside or outside edge may be worn but may not be dangerous/illegal. Probably the tracking that caused it to wear but my guess would be its fine to drive on.

    You should have got up and left, £160 is an absolute insult unless it was a top of the range tyre he sold you.

    its was a goodyear nct5 £160 for the tyre and tracking, i know i could of got it far far cheaper else where and under normal circumstances i would of told him to sod off but i had so much stuff to do today with going away 2moro i just didnt have time to be getting other prices. i wish id have got this checked last week, that would of given me enough time to get better prices. live and learn.
