    Tyres

    Hi All,

    Just noticed 3 bulges on my passenger front tyre! one is pretty big as well

    Just wondering with tyres, do you guys replace 2 or 4 at a time or do you just replace the one that is needed?!

    Also,

    is it best to stick with the same tyre that is already on there?! mine are all dunlop sport maxx (2 old and 2 new type so i have been told) just wondering as the price for mine per tyre is £121

    Cheers

    Dan

    depends on how worn the other tyres are with me. if the front left has the bulge and the front right is still pretty new, ill just change the front left, but if the front right is pretty worn i would change them both. get even wear on the tyres then.

    Weird perhaps, but can you post a picture? I've never known what these bulges are supposed to look like!

    How old is the tyre and how many miles has it covered? If it's quite new and with loads of tread left you might be able to get it replaced for free (by whoever fitted it), as clearly it's not fit for purpose.
