Michelin headache

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Sep 2004

YOUR problem is so common with Michelin that tyre dealers are being left with stocks of superseded tyres. To help out owners like yourself, dealers have a website with information on which tyres are available and where. Stuckey Tyre Service (Ph: 9386 5331) may be able to source three tyres to match your spare. Other than that, the replacement Michelin tyre is the XM1, and Stuckey has those for $146 each. They also say it will be better than the originals on your Subaru, which are susceptible to road noise.

Wheel or imaginary

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Jul 2004

THE rate of wear on the rear tyres on all-wheel-drive cars will be higher because they're driving when the rear tyres on a front-wheel-drive car aren't. That said, the front tyres of both all-wheel-drives and front-wheel-drives wear at about the same rate, so the added wear is related to the rear tyres of the all-wheel-drive cars which will wear out at about the same rate as the front tyres.
