    I had my tyres fit to my freshly painted wheels today and one of the tyres had a hole in the edge of it so they said it was scrap :(

    I've got a pair of Kumho ecsta ku31's but I think there's only around 3mm on them.

    Thanks Mark, i was hoping for a yoko tho with good tread to match the one ive had fit.

    Theres one on ebay that i will prob grab if no-one has one.

    I have 2 suhmo in the garden that i could use if i get desperate :lol:

    I left the tyre with them George, if it isnt safe to fix, its not worth risking it on something im going to be ragging around.

    I will eventualy get new rubber.

    That's ok, I only wanted £20 for them so thought I'd see if they were any good to you or not. You're better off trying to get one the same brand with a similar tread depth anyway.

    There's always stuff on ebay, I needed 1 17" continental sport contact for my road wheels recently and I found loads with varying amounts of tread.
