Is this safe to drive ?
Cant wait to pay over £130 for a new one. (inc fitting)
Hmm, I'd stick the spare on! What car is it, did you hit something?
Pretty sure the answer to your question is no.
The 4 little contact points between your tyres and the road are all that keep you fixed to the road and not sliding off. It's amazing the amount of difference between tyres that are in good condition, but the comparison with one thats in bad condition isn't even worth making.
I dont think so.
I overheard today as i was getting my tracking done is that a bubble in the tyre means the threads inside have snapped after hitting something and the only thing left holding that section together is the rubber.
Prob not but if you aren't driving to fast take the risk. People drive with a mirror missing and things so join them in that.
Put the spare on at least
A mirror missing isn't in the same league as a knackered tyre. One is cosmetic and is only used when the driver checks it... it's possible to do without.
The other is put under constant strain whilst driving and I'd not want to be in the car when it gives up.
Peugeot 307 2.0
The wheels are stock ones so tyre sizes.
I was intending on getting all 4 wheels fully refurbished and replacing the front 2 tyres with 2 I have in the garage Bridgestone Re040`s as the ones that came with the car are cheapo Nangkangs. With about 1000/2000 miles left in them.
Currently the rear axle is on mixed tyres that was down to the last owner. 1 pretty new damaged Perrili Pzero (Pictured) and an Avon with alot of tread on it.
I will have this tyre replaced.
Thats about sums it up. So I say no
R.I.P Amps tyre
Any damage to the side way can be deadly
no way, don't drive it AT ALL with a tyre like that!
I'd rather walk than drive with that.
I'm checking my tyres later now - I haven't even looked at them in ages!
I'd put the Re040s on the front axel. The Nangkangs on the rear.
Replace the Nangkangs with something better once they wear out, but they will last a fair while on the back.
Put the P Zero in the bin, and keep the Avon as a spare.
Answer = no, change it asap.
This sounds like a plan.
That will keep me busy.
Is it safe to have lowergrade tyres on the rear?
Nope, sidewall = bad. I had exactly the same thing not long back. I must admit i drove on it for a week (slowly). But if i had my time again i wouldnt risk it.
No! Not safe in the slightest.
Even if it was partly safe, its not a risk id want to take. As said, stick the spare on.
lol. You guys are funny. That's more than fine to drive.
Am joking. I wouldn't recommend at all to drive in that condition.
