Vanco 2 tyre caution

Postby moley551 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:38 pm

The lad turned up for work this morning giggling like a school girl when he came in, that we weren't going anywhere for a while..WTF perfect start to a shit day. Flat tyre!
Blew the bugger up, drive to tyre place, big nail and damage inside the tyre so it looks like low pressure damage and possibly age cracks. Can't get a Vanco 2 to match the new spare tyre to give a new pair on the front so opted for two new Vanco 200. When they removed the 2nd tyre it's also got big splits and lots of cracks and that one has never run on low pressure or had any impacts, the last two pictures are from the second tyre, both tyres had 3mm + of tread so could have done another few months at least...-£240 start to the day. "Bloody tyres"

I didn't think of looking at the manufacture date untill after we left the tyre fitters, I normally put new on the front and the fronts get moved to the rear but it can't of worked out like that because this tyre had been repaired and I've only had one done in 2014/15 which makes me think this tyre is possibly the original, factory fitted in Mid 2013 can a van tyre do 88k miles fitted to the rear of a fully loaded van?

I think that’s great mileage from a van tyre!

Bad start to the day as you say but at least you are safe again... that looks like they were ready to fail....could have been bad :shock:

Nah custom ones, they took off the conti ones and poor Michelin's on, I think it was located in Scotland so a good set of snow tyres fitted.
