New tyres & Wheel alignment after 30,000Km

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recently took my 2 year old, 30,000Km 997 in for its first service. The dealer said that I needed 2 new rear tyres and a wheel alignment as the rear wheels were out and needed alignment. When I looked at the rear tyres half the tyre had no rubber left, it was amazing that it did not blow. I accepted and paid for it, but then later a friend said it should have been a warranty job as I only use it in normal day to day driving.

Is this normal, should this be under warranty???

Hi, no one gets more than about 17k miles on the rears. The alignment is set for cornering and if you do lots of highway miles (like me) the tire wears badly on the inside.

Do you use the conti contact 2's. If so you can probably halve the cost of replacement by going to a normal tyre dealer with the internet price of the tyres in hand. Also unless something happened to the car the aligment would be ok. did you get a before / after alignment read out for the car or did the dealer just get to charge you for the work (wink wink).
