    Default Heswall Tyres.....

    Decided to rotate the tyres around on the Signum this morning because the fronts are wearing quicker than I thought, and are now down to aroun 2.5 - 3mm.
    Try as I might, I couldnt shift the locking wheel bolts and Vx had also done one of the wheels up with an air gun so they were tight as anything!

    Gave the local tyre place named above a call, 10 mins later I was there and one of the guys had the bolts loosened in a jiffy.

    The locking bolts have been chucked into the bin and replaced with a normal bolt.

    The guy wouldnt take any payment for his time, which I was really grateful for, and afte an enquiry as to Tyre prices for 225/45's I found that for Conti Sport Contacts that they are around £94 each including fitting, valve and balance. Far cheaper than some places were quoting, and they are willing to fit the 225's in place of the 215's, which a lot of places round here wont do now.

    BIg thumbs up to them, highly recommended!

    I know just what you mean. One of the wheel had been done up by Vx - with an air gun, so there was no way I was going to shift that.
    And those useless locking bolts just wouldnt shift at all.

    The tyres that were on the front had suddenly worn quickly and I was alarmed at how much grip I now have from rotating the rears to the front. And I have tightened the wheel nuts up, so I know that I can get them off again should i need to.....
