Carol, do not mix types on the same Axle, What is your spare??

Carol,
Most of them do tracking!
I have used the chap by the Blue Elephant Car Washing, opposite CAF on the old road from Canet to Perpignan, so do a lot of my neighbours.

When I lived in the Conflent I was lucky if my Front Tyres lasted a year.
The Nurses and Doctors were lucky to get 4 to 6 months.
