Guys,

PLease advise

I have now done 23000 miles on my runflat tyres and have a bad vibration
between 50 -80 mph

I need to replace them as they have worn on the inside and outside, but not in the middle!

Should I go for ordinary tyres for a better ride and wear?

I am based in the UK

Many Thanks in advance

Sean

Whatever you replace them with, go with higher air pressure; that is why the middle is not wearing. Be diligent & check it often to ensure your tires aren't low on air. It'll give you better handling, better mpg, and will save you money.
