David Jones Posted June 23, 2020 Share Posted June 23, 2020 We bought our Alphard 2005 great vehicle. Tyres looked black and newish. But after buying I took it for a check up. The tyre were old and perished but still had a legal tread. We were advised to change as the tyres were structurally unsafe. Back to car importer who told us it was wear and tear. Yeh after 1 week of ownership and 25 mile of driving. Luckily we payed deposit by credit card to secure vehicle. Inform manager politely we would be contacting MasterCard. He agreed to replace all four tyres. Please look carefully and ask the manufacture date of tyres. Take photos before purchasing as some dealers swap wheels over before delivery. Also ask for speedo conversion before buying. Found out they use local garage to do this but only if customer ask. They won’t volunteer to do it. Just cos it’s still legal. It’s hard to judge correct speed. I know after being ticketed for 2 mph over limit. Our next project is the head unit. There is a lack of expert fitters in my area. Prices vary depending on the experience of the fitter. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
