Now I know that many of you are experts in rubber .... tyres! I don't do a lot of miles and to save some dosh I'm considering buying part-worn. I've seen these on ebay which are 4 for £60 (my garage man will fit for £5)

When I magnify the picture its showing 3 or 4 indents / grooves across the tyre. Anyone know what would have caused that or is it just a manufacturing mark??
Thanks

from experience i never buy used tyres . You can never trust how they have been treated or what nasty things they might be hiding. I always use ridgeway tyres.

Shorely the number of miles you do doesn't have relevance to the level of safety (tread) you want to put on your wagon? All putting a second hand set on will do is mean you have to replace them earlier next time around?

False economy, putting a set of ditch-finders on. Only scenario I'd do that would be if you were putting a set on to get it thru a MOT before getting rid.

I really hadn't looked at that way!! I must do better. I'm not buying them - I'll get new.

Motorservice will put me right, the most number of part worn tyres comes from Eastern Europe.
