Left it running all night and finished off with an hour on the M23/A23 to top it off.

I pity the poor sod who gets lumped with it when we're done with it... Limited to 53mph and utterly gutless... :o struggled to maintain 40 up Handcross Hill empty :D

It,s the future don,t ya know.  :'(

You're supposed to replace both tyres on one axle.

Well....he used to own a Marina. I suppose putting good tyres on a Marina (or on an elderly derv BMW) is the same as putting a dress and lipstick on a pig. :)

I did.  2 new front tyres, front and rear toe adjusted.  :y

So should you, the way you get through (premium) tyres!  ::)  :P

I've replaced the front tyres with the same Runway 926's, as I got 15000 miles out of the previous set  :y  and probably would have got 20,000 if the alignment had stayed true.  ::)

This behaviour is unknown in Dorset/Devon, so I can only assume it's a Lincolnshire custom.  :)

Budget tyres don't match my driving styles.  There are times I need some level of grip.

Runway 926 @ 68 each.   :)

I have them on both cars and as said earlier got about 15,000 miles from the set I replaced today.  :y

I do a lot of motorway driving, but I also enjoy a bit of 'spirited' driving through the twisties and havn't ended up in the hedge yet.  ::)
