Continental tyres fitted to a BMW and Dunlop tyres fitted to a Honda JazzOn Friday we were called to a customer in Cambridge as the front tyres on a Honda Civic were wearing out on the outer edge but the steering wheel was not pulling to one side which is usually an indication that there is a tracking issue.We performed a wheel alignment check and our equipment confirmed that there was an alignment issue.We moved the existing rear tyres to the front and fitted two new Dunlop tyres size 175/65/R15 to the rear axle.We then corrected the tracking so our customer will get the full value of the new tyres we fitted.We then headed north to fit two Continental tyres size 255/40/R17 to a BMW 5 series and as always asked the customer if he required runflat tyres but he confirmed that the vehicle carries a spare wheel which is a good indication that the existing tyres on the vehicle are not runflat tyres.
