I don’t have one of these fancy new 4×4’s I am a old Jeep person. A friend of mine hasked a question about replacement tyres of a vehicle with permanent 4×4 such as a Toureg.
He has damaged one tyre and needs to replace it, the remaining three are part-worn. These are the recommendations he has received from local ‘experts’:
1) find a second-hand tyre which matches the make and level of wear on the remaining three,
2) You must buy 2 new tyres for that axle, or
3) It is essential that you replace all 4 tyres so that each has the identical rolling diameter otherwise you will damage you central diff.
At least one of these is clearly ridiculous – would anyone like to add to this list of recommendations ?
