    Default dodgy eagle nct tyres

    after washing the car yesterday i noticed one of my rear tyres has a split in it! so it reminded me of the thread someone had posted about said tyres and i was wondering if this split could be a symptom of the recall got a shock when i saw it , so im going to local stealers tomorrow to get them checked. as wee wifey drives the car mostly i want it checked as im sure everyone will agree wifes and kids are precious cargo!BTW meant to say the split looks more like a crack!

    yep mate it starts at the upper half of the sidewall and goes approx 1" across the tread, very worrying, need to get it sorted as im heading down south at the end of september and i dont want any blow outs!

    definitely get it checked out, also the tyre may get swapped under the recall.

    check the four digit number on the wall of the tyre to see if its in the range.

    Default Tyre Split

    Yeh, I've got Eagle NCT tyres that came with the car from new. I've checked the numbers and they are not within the faulty tyres.

    But, I noticed a split the other day, whilst it was parked. I've just taken these pics outside...

    The split appears, upon closer inspection, to be right on the joining mould..?!
