New front tyres on my GT, and tracking done....
I knew the front on my GT were nearing the end of their life, so after a bit of research and haggling I have changed them.
The Hankook Ventus Evos were pretty good to be fair, I've done 16K on them since having the car, and they certainly weren't new when I had the car. So good wear and I couldn't fault the grip in wet or dry.
I've replaced them with Falken FK452s at £84 each fitted (I know the fitter pretty well!).
As he took the near side wheel off, I was shocked to see the inside shoulder wear, ohhps.
So he checked the tracking, it was miles out!
Near side bolts were solid and took some serious moving.
But, 90 mins later the new tyres were on.
Have driven it home and can't believe the difference! Much more compliant ride, far more precise. Didn't realise how bad the previous set up had become.
So, fingers crossed the Falkens are as good as they have started.
Have posted a photo of the passenger side:

And loving it
