    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

    Yep, tyres are all the same size, same make, same model and same tread.

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