    Drivers side has a bulge in it.. gutted how does this even happen?? currently on super sports so considering a change my ocd will make me change both front tyres even though they’ve still got plenty meat on.

    Anyone used any other brand than Michelin? just curious heaven forbid we go with something non oem.

    Bulges can be caused by nipping the tyre on a kerb or even going over pot holes, in my experience.  When mine are due for replacement I’m going to try the continentals like. Had the contact 5 on my mk2 st and they seemed really good to me, then I put two Bridgestones on the front and they weren’t so good I felt.

    That would rattle your teeth a bit, always pays to complete a walk around inspection prior to pushing back.

    yorkirs thats the sort of tyre Corbyn would argue is better for the country !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    I’ve got the Cont SportContact6’s fitted.

    2k done (with PDC off) & no veering steering or tram lining. Can’t fault them.

    oh cool. Just remembered, they don’t do sportcontact 6 on 18″ !  I hope you didn’t get this little vixen in a nightie to change your tyres mate!..
