    Default A quick heads up on NEW GOODYEAR NCT'S!

    People! You should know about this.
    Both my front tyres ,fairly new by the way and not even half used have cracked across the tread!
    These pictures were taken the very next day(on mobile so forgive focusing iissues) as i had them whipped straight off,and i now await a decision from Goodyear,on an offer of a total or part refund.
    The dock code for these NCT's is 4805.
    Goodyear were contacted whilst i was there and claimed that they had not experienced any faults with tyres in this docket number range.
    I have had to buy 2 new tyres whilst i await their decision.
    I only noticed it on the drivers side by chance,and then upon inspection found the passenger wheel starting to do the same!
    It's was a at a different rotation point of the tyre than the front,ruling out the idea of a bizzare slashing attempt,the tyre dealer agreed,showing me where the fault was starting and then getting worse as it moved along the tread.
    Worth noting also that the new NCT's i have been fitted with,
    I have a different tread pattern,cut in such a way as if it would prevent what has happened to mine.
    Please check your tyres,and get posting if you find the same,knowing these tyres i wont be alone with this for long.

    Assuming these are front tyres...
    What engine is your car, and what tyre specification is it?
    215/50 R17 91V, 91W, or 95W?

    If you found a crack in one tyre, would they have to replace all 4?

    It's not the first time there's been a problem with the NCT5's, i've steered well clear of those this time round !

    I think the other company was Firestone, they made some dodgy tyres in the US.

    So, just found one of my tyres is split - from 4805. Obviously that needs replacing but how do I get a refund? And should I replace the other 3 if they appear to be OK?
