    Front drivers tyre looks flatter than the rest but all pressures the same?

    Hi guys,

    I have noticed that my front drivers tyre appears slighty flatter than the rest.

    Now, I run standard 16" alloys with radial tyres so I know it is normal for them to look as if they are flat but should there be a difference in appearance between the o/s front and n/s front tyre. I have triple checked each tyre pressure and they are both running 35psi.

    Is this difference in appearance normal or indicative of a problem?

    I have noticed that the engine is mounted more too the off side of the vehicle. Could it simply be a question of weight distribution or is that just wishful thinking?

    Any help/advice/ideas would be very much appreciated

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Even if they were winter tyres, it still wouldn't be normal for the osf to look lower than the nsf
