    My experience of part worn/remould on farm vehicles tells me enough. They're going nowhere near my car.

    And the average driver is a tyre expert? I don't think so.

    Having been right behind a blowout on a motorway, I won't be going anywhere NEAR part worn tyres. Ever.

    Also, for some people, a 206 or whatever is ALL they can afford - either to buy, or to be insured upon. Just because they aren't brand new BMWs doesn't mean that it doesn't matter to the owners if they suffer a blowout/some other failing.

    If its only 1 tyre and its a below average car ( 206 etc) then i see no issue .
    once again your BMW driver tosspot persona wins out

    part worn is the last last last resort you simply don't know the history - budget / mid range new or good remoulds ( many track tyres are remoulds ... ) are far safer becasue the new tyres are new and if made to standards should be good for many miles ditto the remoulds

    Having to change my front tyres soon, one is on the legal limit of 1.6mm, the other is at 2mm

    Thankfully I have a pal working at Bridgestone who can get discount, he's getting me a quote tomorrow

    Full price the tyres would be about £45-50 each. I fully believe that tyres are the one area where you should absolutely not skimp on safety to save money.

    BMW - I think people are taking exception to you advocating part worn tyres, when you clearly personally wouldn't put them on your Beamer.

    Additionally, just because someone is driving a 206 doesn't mean they are poor, or should stick to using inferior car components because their car isn't as 'executive' as other brands/models.

    Ok,

    No one is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to use a part worn :confused:
