    Default Frig6in Lucky

    Coming home from Birmingham yesterday, I thiught that I really must have a check on the rear wheel bearing that I thought was getting noisey.
    The rumble went away at 100+ish mph though, so I kept it above that speed (Like you do!)
    Went to my mates tyre depot today to rotate the tyres. Imagine my shock when I removed the near side rear wheel and found this...

    Two new Yokahamas on order, I'll be checking the wear, JUST in case the car has had a bump in its previous life as a VX management car, Network Q and all that..

    Both the tyre fitter and I am wondering if there's something up with the cars suspension. They refused to let me drive home on the space saver and lent me a works van for tonight until the new tyres arrive tomorrow.
    He's going to track and camber check the car tomorrow as there was 2mm minimum across the whole of the rest of the tyre left. We're wondering if the car has had a bump in the past.
    It's a Network Q car, which is supposed to be accident free though.
    I shudder to think what could have happened this coming Sunday on the way to Tintern for the meet with the missus and our 3 month old son on the back had it burst at 70mph.

    So that'll be 3 points for the defective tyre, or a ban for the 100+ Mph..... naughty!!!
