Tyre problem


Recommended Posts

Hello, gentlemen. I just received my 72 plate GLc 43, but this morning I had a distressing problem with the tyres gripping. I had previously experienced this issue with a C43 18 plate, and I did not anticipate it to persist. Are dealers replacing the worn-out tyres under warranty?
Thank you in advance.

Tyres exhibit skipping behaviour, particularly in cold weather, and some vehicles and tyre sizes/designs amplify this phenomenon to make it more conspicuous. Regrettably, the possession of a vehicle equipped with wide, low-profile high-performance tyres is an inherent aspect.

If the dealer refuses to replace the tyres at their expense, it is advisable to purchase winter tyres. This will effectively reduce or eliminate the occurrence of tyre skip and significantly enhance the performance of your vehicle in cold and rainy winter conditions.

The RHD GLC crabbing problem is well documented, and it is astonishing that people continue to purchase them. Alternatively, purchase one with the awareness of an inherent defect. Many individuals choose a certain vehicle based on their own preferences, while being fully aware of certain characteristics such as excessive fuel consumption, costly maintenance, inadequate dealership assistance, and significant depreciation.

Certain individuals have been seen purchasing an 11-year-old 100Kmile 5.4 V8 AMG with a questionable service record, despite doing little research, because to their affinity for the colour and the concept behind it.

Thank you for your response. I find it to be far more instructive than others. In relation to winter tyres, a dealer is recommending the all-season tyre to its clients. It is worth noting that these tyres are suitable for use throughout the year, as implied by their name. Best regards

Affirmative, all-season tyres are suitable for year-round usage. Although they may not possess the same level of sharpness as high-performance summer tyres during summer or winter tyres throughout winter, they serve as a satisfactory balance.

The range of tyre sizes for all season tyres is often more restricted compared to summer or winter tyres. Therefore, the availability of these tyres will depend on which size fits your car's current wheels.

If the dealer is providing payment, choose the kind of payment they provide. However, if you are making a payment, it is advisable to choose for winter tyres and replace them between late April and early October in order to benefit from both options.

May I inquire about an additional matter while selecting a pair of All Season tyres to replace the conventional ones in order to eliminate the bothersome skipping issue? Should I go for the run flat kind, or are they contributing to the problem owing to the excessive firmness of the side wall?

While it may be somewhat bothersome, is it really of significant importance? During the reversal out in the chilly full lock, I executed a gla 45 that exhibited a hop skip and leap like to that of Jonathan Edwards. Even my e46 M3 had some braking issues over the winter, as did most of my other RWD vehicles, such as my C63S estate. While the issue is more noticeable in an AWD vehicle, it seems to be a slight inconvenience rather than a significant concern.
