Mot guy says i need two new front tyres and front pads and its only done 7500 miles.

I would say thats pretty poor performance?

Saw these on amazon - any good?

Hi Stef hows things long time no speak - i used to be over on the Streetka forum if you remember until my honest and sometimes ribald posts got me banned by Stoney!

Yeah my mum used it and she only ran to the shops so didnt do much mileage.

Bought in 2014 as ex demonstrator and just MOTD April.

Yeah i thought that was poor myself.

I am finding it a rather cracking little car much better than the Streetkrap!

7500 is ridiculous for both a set of front tyres and a set of pads.   Something wrong there somewhere.   I'd get a second opinion.

Tyre wise unless they've worn unevenly, it might be down to how it's driven.

for the pads, could be a stuck piston or rusty slider pins or again could be the driver.

those pads could be OK, it's always a good idea to go for the cheapest unknown brand possible for things like brakes and tyres etc.

I always buy good tyres but cheap brake pads have always been fine with my Rover820si, Dutton Phaeton S3, Opel Manta B, Streetka but not my Lotus Excel Eclat.

And now the Fiesta to add to the collection we shall see!

Yes thats what i thought 7500 and two new front tyres and pads is pretty poor but its my mothers car so i have no idea if she had everything checked properly when she bought it in 2014.

I think maybe your mum is sneaking out at night doing burnouts :wink:

as above I would get a second opinion something isn't right there or maybe post a pic of the tyres to show how they are worn

I sincerely hope that was a typo, or some sarcasm that I missed.

Yeah the seller i usually use is Eurocarparts i have used them for years and never had a problem yet!

Quickco also gets 100% reviews.

Always pays to check reviews on anything you buy these days even counterfeit pills are being sold in Boots.

You cannot actually tell these days even Cisco routers and switches are being cloned in the midnight hour factories.

Midnight hour factories are ten a penny in China now its quite worrying!
