Hey all


My car seems a little less stable recently, even though suspension wise its all pretty tip top atm (shocks, bushes, etc)

First thing I can put this down to, and its kinda obvious in some ways, is at present I have no lpg tank and spare tyre, making it much lighter in the back end.. I honestly think a gas tank in the back improves stability considerably..

But the other thing is, I have two brand new tyres on the back and one has a totally diff tread pattern to the other (was a replacement for a damaged one)..

Anyone else noticed traction problems with tyres of diff tread patterns?

I guess it would have less impact on the back than if it was on the front but im unsure..

Try moving the rear tyres to the front and see if the problem moves with them. If it does it is probably your tyres and you can go back to however supplied them and see what they will do.
