New brake discs and pads for my car arrived today, should get them fitted this weekend.
Then test next week, then hopefully I'll be able to airsoft next Sunday :).

But, I still need at least one new tyre.
Anyone got any advice on this?

The tyres all have enough tread on them to last a while, the one that needs replacing (rear, driver's side) has a split in the tyre wall, so is quite flat at the moment.

Now, do I buy one part-worn tyre to replace this one, then the tread depth will match the remaining three tyres?
Buy one new tyre to replace this one, but then have one tyre with new tread and others all part-worn (as they are now)?
Or, buy two new tyres? If so, do they go on the front or back, and why?

If you get it part worn it saves you money and the head scratching.

Long story, sorry it's not very concise, it's late:

You're unlikely to feel the difference in tread depth that much unless you happen to be splashing through some big puddles at a speed high enough that you're tyres can't clear the water quick enough. I've driven with a new tyre on one wheel only and I wouldn't have known the difference on day to day pottering about.

If you get a new tyre, it doesn't really matter, other than the fact that tyre will likely disperse water quicker and potentially stop quicker meaning the car 'could' pull to one side slightly.

Assuming your vehicle is front wheel drive, the front tyres will wear down much faster, since they are doing the driving, steering and majority of the braking where as the rears just roll around. It's a bit more balanced for RWD. What I'm saying here is, if your fronts are worn, swap them to the back and put ones with more grip on the front. Some people say this can induce oversteer, which frankly I find a load of old sugar. I drove around in the snow this year in a FWD car with not much grip on the back and more on the front and it was still understeer I had the problem with on snow and ice. Incidentally, if you do ever have the back end get loose then it is simply a case of turning into the slide and slamming the throttle pedal the the floor. This *should* bring the car back round. If you're driving a RWD car it's a little trickier in slippy conditions.

I'd always opt for more tread on the front since those are the wheels steering it and you want them to be grippy, assuming you are going to replace both (or just one tbh). You're unlikely to be struggling to put the power down having just passed your test (well not advisable to go flooring it anyway :P), so definitely grip where you're steering.

Hope that clears things up a little (lets be honest you're probably more confused and I should have said nothing :lol:)

I won't definitely won't be flooring it, don't really fancy crashing to be honest..
Also, I plan on going with the co-op for insurance, they monitor speed, acceleration, braking and cornering.
Will cost about 1400 rather than 2400 (cheapest elsewhere).

Thanks, I'll get a part-worn and then in theory, they should wear out equally and need replacing in pairs in the future :P.

Insurance prices are horrible, one thing you have to consider with that co-op scheme is that should you need to brake or corner hard in order to avoid other drivers, or other "non racey" reasons, then you're going to get penalised by it. It's the same with acceleration, sometimes you have to put your foot down a bit to get out of a junction into a gap otherwise you'd be sat there all day!

Is that with putting your parents on as named drivers?

Yeah with parents as named drivers. 1400's a lot of money. My mates are paying quite a lot more; one's got a T reg 1L Peugeot 106, his insurance is 350 deposit + 250 a month, so 3350 for a year; another mate has a 54 plate Fiesta, 1.1L, 2700 insurance. So, 1400 on an 05 plate 1.8L Mondeo is quite good in comparison.

I think it must allow for things like that, but the way it works is you start with a certain amount of points, and then each thing you do wrong/bad you lose points. Insurance won't go up (unless I drive like a complete idiot, or make a claim). Think you start with something like 90 points or so over a 2 or 3 month period.

My mate's friend took his car drifting or something, just to see how many points he'd lose, and he didn't actually lose any.
Either way, it's worth the 1000 saving.


What are you bidding on Cam?

It's supposed to measure the g force when you corner, so should have picked it up really :P.

Well I'm not sad, angry, happy or anything really... I guess perplexed is the best word to use.

Reason being?

THERE A BILLION BASTARDING BEES EVERYWHERE! In my house, outside my house, at every window, at every door. The noise is ridiculous, it sounds like I'm living in a beehive and it looks like it too...

Thankfully I'm not freaked out by them or anything, it's just unpleasant going for a sh*t and having a horde of bees surrounding you... Can't believe I haven't been stung yet.

If they were crane flies I think I'd have committed suicide by now.

Yes, I bloody f*cking hate those things. They're to me like spiders are to most people.

I literally can't be in the same room as one, I don't even like going near dead ones...
