Hi all what a week it has been, though I had wheel bearing rumble, so bought 2 new fir the front, got the changed but was told by garage that abs sensor was a pig to remove.... Guess what rumbling still there?? Garage said that the tyres on the front are worn unevenly at the front.... Took the focus to a tyre pace they said its quite common for the tyres to wear unevenly (budget tyres) but more on the rears than fronts... Just swapped back to fronts etc...

My issues....

What causes this wear??
Why does my esp light flash when accelerating, but won't go over 65mph? But if I turn off leave off for 10mins the ok??

Thanks in advance Tony

As far as I know, the uneven wear is down to the tracking being out.

When I bought my car it was the same case with uneven wear on the front 2 tyres. Getting the tracking done only costs about 20quid.
