Tyres - Anyone used part-worn before?
I have a bit of an issue with a tyre that needs replacing. The problem is this. My car has a rather sensative skid contol system and now that one rear tyre has worn down to the point of needing replacing the skid alarm goes off due to the fact that it rotates at a different rate to it's partner on the other side (which has plenty of miles left in it) thus causing the car to think it is skidding, and activating the alarm. Apparently it is a common problem with my model.
Now, my car uses a relatively uncommon tyre size (215/70R16) and a 'cheap' new tyre will cost about £100 fitted. This then may cause the problem of the other wheen then turning at a different rate and repeating the problem. However, I can buy a matching pair of 'branded' part worns off the net with plenty of tread on them for about £60 (inc delivery), and as I only do about 6000 miles per year they will last a fair bit.
Has anyone actually brought or used part worns before, and if so were they ok or are there any issues I should be aware of?
