    Default getting a bit concerned

    i have had my M.O.T done three days ago and asked the bloke in the garage to sort my tracking out anyway he said,we dont do that ! i can book it in elsewere so i declined.

    went to quick fit today and they said there is nothing wrong with my tracking it maybe the front tyre ?

    the problems i have is the car realy pulls to the right , and the steering wheel is of center when going in a straight line, could this really be due to a new tyre needed ? i also get terrible vibrations once i get up to around 50 ,

    advice really appreciated as i have no trust in driving at the moment , and at this time of year the kids are in a lot, and i feel really unsafe going above 50

    the vibrations could be that the front wheels need re/balanced. sometimes after they have been on a while from new they need another balance as they can settle. check that first only about £5 to do both fronts

    Try swapping them from side to side ie right to left and left to right and see if it pulls to the right after that. If it does then probably tracking if not then you know something wrong with the tyre. HTH

    not realy a good idea swapping tyres side to side as most tyres are directional. check for balancing and tyre pressures. oh and try another garage with laser tracking. there shoud be no major steering or suspension probs if it passed mot. good luck.
