GV 2000 tyre issue

Post by ipbr21054 » Fri May 25, 2018 9:41 pm

Hi,
My GV has both its front tyres going bald on there innee edge.
I had both replaced & tracking sone 5 months ago.
Ive noticed that the car feels like it wants to go left hence im holding the steeeing wheel towards the right direction to balance it out etc.
The rest of the tyre tread is like new.

Can you advise any issues that these GV might suffer with or asvise where i start.

I dont want to use the word crab but i think the GV is deivjng left right left right in a kind of straight line if that makes any sense.

Thanks.

Sounds to me like you need the tracking done again, or the bushings have all worn out (throwing the tracking out).
