    Default What a result, 4 x Sport Contact 2's for 160............

    Well since getting the BK999's (18 x 8J) from Vid I have been looking for new tyres to replace the Wanli 225/40/18's that were fitted. The change was also brought on by VX as they had replaced a track rod end under warranty earlier on in the year and not set up the tracking correctly resulting in a worn inner edge of the side they worked on. Wanted 235/45/18's and been saving up till now. Today I decided to pop into a local second hand tyre place and they had a stack of Sport Contact 2's which still had the new tyre markers on them! So it seemed they were only on the cars for a few miles or so. So i said how much and the answer was 40 each inc balancing and fitting. I hesitated for 3ms before saying YES incase he changed his mind.

    So I got a result and even better my speedo now reads correctly as well (matches my satnav)

    There's probably a depot locally that deals with Volvo's, Volvo UK will only use/recognise certain tyres and if any new cars arrive with the wrong tyres from the factory they replace them.

    I think he had another set left but I am thinking about buying them myself as I do 30k a year. Think it has to be done..............
