    New Tyre

    I'm going to replace a front tyre with a brand new one, the other front tyre has around 7.5mm tread, I shouldn't get any problems with this slight difference should I??? The tyres will be the same manufacturer/model as well.

    No Magpie that should be ok. Try and swap the lower tread depth one with a rear later on as these wear slower. When the new fronts almost the same tread depth swap it back. I always rotate my tyres to even wear.
