No the tyres were good when we set off to France and then one went awry. The others changed due to mileage and would have maybe been ok if rebalanced, however they were going to be changed before winter set in this month as we could be blocked in if snow arrives. Not that I go out during any snow but I could be caught trying to get home as we live on higher ground. |
I regularly visually inspect my tyres and the one that went down still looked ok so it must have been the internal casing starting to give way or Maybe a balance weight came off. I did not think to check it to see.
As the old tyres had done 36,500 miles without any rebalancing in that time, they needed to be changed although still had about 4mm of tread.
With the new tyres there appears not to be any wear distortion of the front discs during normal driving but when towing the caravan it would be more pronounced as greater pedal pressure often needed.
The pity is that I had hopefully wanted to buy a later model Sorento this month but £ tight so it’s not on.
