    Lucky?

    I got a flat tyre yesterday while i was cleaning my car so i pumped it up and took it to Canterbury coz i thought i had a nail in it.
    Much to my shock i found this on the inner edge



    This front tyre has only done about 3000 miles

    I could only afford to buy one new tyre this week as it cost me £75 for a cheapie so the car has been parked up until i get another new one.
    Should get my new 18's next week
    So lowering the car does not cause this then?
