I'm currently running Goodyear Eagles but this is the third set I've had that have split in the tread grooves.

This was what I posted in 2018 regarding Goodyear Eagles splitting. I'll try to dig out the photo so that others can see the amount of tread left compared to the split. It's a shame as I liked them as a tyre.

I'd want a written guarantee that the 'upgrade' will only improve the car before letting any authorised repairer anywhere near the car.
I should have asked Google before my knee jerk post, Nick. There is no way her car is going for a remap that will reduce power and increase consumption, just to save a few noxes. As it is not a safety recall, there is no mention of it on DVSA, so it can be MOT'd as normal. Just not at Vx, because the sneaky bastards would do it as a matter of course.

Absolutely this, Steve.

Washed & vacuumed the Range Rover after 10 days of driving around the Yorkshire Moors area, hate seeing it mucky now gleaming & tucked away in the garage.

I rather like the idea of a bike engine in a small car.

Nick W will tell you that bike engines don't produce enough power or torque.......although I'm pretty sure a 1340cc 4 cylinder Hayabusa lump produces more power and torque than a twin cylinder 499cc Fiat engine from 1957. ::) ::) ;)




It's not just the amount, but where the power and torque are produced. A 1.0l engine that makes 100hp by revving to 12,000rpm with not much except noise under 4000 and drives a 24" diameter tyre through a six speed gearbox attached to a 200kg vehicle is not necessarily suited to a car that weighs 4 times that. 6 times if it's a modern car ::)

Where in the rev range does a Hayabusa produce less power and torque than a Fiat 500?

Yeah..yeah...I know. Not exactly a fair comparison. ::) ::) :D


Don't get me wrong, a bike engine in the right car(like a basic Caterham) is a laugh. For as long as the owner lets you borrow it :y


Have you ever tried something like a 1.7 Puma? That's a high revving, short geared, small car that's fun until you turn off the country road and makes you wish you'd bought a 'normal' car.

Four new Yokohamas on the Range Rover earlier in the year 20 inch wheels 620 didn't think that was too bad.

if you did sit in the car then the M25 protesters could block your road for you to highlight your plight  :)
then you could have your house wrapped in polystyrene and render , ruining the look  ::)
Couldn't my house be wrapped in M25 protestors?
possibly , if you nailed them on well  :D
