    Default Rear tyres

    Went to get my fronts balanced today and the guy was gonna change the backs for the fronts due to the amount of weight that needed to be put on, when he showed be my rear tyres both of them had plenty of tread on the middle and outside but the inside was warn down fully,

    He's told me that i should take it straight back to vauxhall and that my lease company wouldn't replace them until the cord was showing.


    Does anybody know what might be causing the tyres to go like this?

    its a 57 plate and i have done 31000 in it with not much more than a buggy or the weekly shop in, just don't like the fact that i still have to put up with bad balancing on the front because loys autolease said they were safe to use but the guy in ats said it was best not to use them tyres on the front

    They are illegal as soon as the tread is no longer visable so they have to change them before the cord is showing as thats just plain dangerous!

    (vecs are known for doing this sometimes as the camber etc can be adjusted on the back too)
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    If you drive a car that is defective, due to excessive wear on the tyres (ie below the legal minimum) then it is not only your life, and the road users around you that is in danger, BUT it is also your licence that will get endorsed (as appropriate) and you paying the fines.

    I think a very strong phone call is necessary.

    if you have tyres showing the cord you risk 3 points per tyre and upto £1000 per tyre fine,once the tread is gone that tyre is illeagal (you are allowed 1.6mm over 3/4s of the tyre width) but there should be visible tread on the last 1/4 of the tyre
