    lol.

    Have I had issues!!!

    Had two wheel bearings replaced under warranty on an another car before we realised it was the tyres and then they fell apart on the inner edges.

    The mrs has a Co car and Quick Fit have just fitted 3 SP Sport Maxx on it much to my disgust, it now sounds like it needs wheel bearings too.

    Hi all I am new here but share the same problem, rumbling type noise from rear and have Dunlop Sports. They are all stepped up on the inner edges thus need replacing before I go mad !!!
    Would recomend Fulda extremo tyres to anyone, good alrounder without the big pricetag. They are Gooodyear F1 rubber cut to Fulda's spec.
