Hi guys,

Picked these two up from the wrecker near Loganlea train station. In good nick besides the obligatory gutter rash. Two new tyres and the rims for $120, sound good?

One question though, I've seen it before but not quite sure if it's a problem. One tyre has a 'bump' on it, like a swelling in one small area. Is this a cause for concern?

I'm just keeping them incase I need to swap out any of my old tyres. For some reason the complete lack of any wheels that will fit e-series compelled me to pick these up as well.

Cheers,
Adam

P.S. I can't remember which e-series. EL Futura or something else?

a bump in the tyre is usually not a good sign either in sidewall or tread area it is a sign of a weakspot in the tyre - best not use them pick up a coupla cheapies for them.

bump in the tyre is uusually caused by the belts braking inside the tyre and bending outwards. the bump will get bigger from use, and cause a blow out or worse. that tyre has either hit something hard, or is old and starting to breakdown. avoid it like the plague.
