ifconfig just change in pairs will do.

neutral It depends on where is the damage. If on Sidewall, they will recommend you to change. The reason is that the tyre may burst if you have a heavy bum.

If center of tyre(or within the thread), then...

lchuanglr hi guys,

can I ask, how long do tyres usually last? I've done 12K km on my stock tyres (dunlop SP31), and my workshop told me don't need to rotate until 20K km... if 20K botak liao, then no poin...
29 May 2008
dalephee Agree wif you Char.. 20k wont botak unless u take hard corners.. normally stock tires can last maybe up to 65k+\-
correct me if i'm wrong..
