second- hand checklist
Consider second-hand tyres as an option when changing tyres as there may be some decent examples out there. Again, shopping local is probably the safest because if there are any issues with the tyres then there is some comeback.
Avoid purchasing tyres without seeing them. I recently spoke to someone who bought some tyres on spec from Britain.
They were what the seller said they were, a leading brand with 70pc and 40pc tread left.
On arrival, though, one set was clearly very old, while the other set had two massive repairs.
The older set were a tubeless design but quite rigid and the tyre centre couldn't blow them up on the rims.
Tubes had to be used, adding to their cost.
The repairs on the other set were professionally done but not what the dealer had expected.
The tyres had even been painted to mask the repair.
