Rubber dud duff !

... three knackered tyres on my tub !

Well I have ranted on this board about the GT's ultra tough & rocky ride. In the months I have had the car it has rattled, shaken, veered strongly to the left (despite tracking and balancing being done) caused to have run in with the Police avoiding pot holes and made me check for broken bones after each journey.

However, when AHM did a great job on my car replacing discs, pads, wish-bone etc, they told me my tyres may need replacing due to the left steer. So finally I got around to taking my GT to 'Top Stop' a known and trusted local tyre and exhaust place (not where I had the tracking and balancing done) and after 5 minutes they told me I had 3 mis-shaped tyres. So today I had the three replaced and hey presto... ride transformed, car is much more refined and no left steer either. It's still a hardish ride and in-tune with the road which I like, but I am no longer driving on 3 square wheels, the GT is an awesome car once again

What a difference tyres can make to your ride !!!
