Sir,
What is the average life-span of the brand new tyres of my Ford Ikon TDCi which I bought in August 2009 and which has run 22,300kms so far. Some mechanics say it will last upto 40,000kms and I need to change the tyres only after that.

The present problem is that even after rotating all tyres twice during previous services, the front left tyre shows signs of excessive wear and tear and there is an irregular hm...hm....hm....hm...noise being heard from that side when the car is moving.

The authorised service station mechanic who attended my car during its last service 2 weeks back says I will have to put up with that unusual noise till the tyres are changed!

Kindly help me with
your valuable suggestions.
Regards,
Akaash.

The Stock tyres last for 40000kms max depending upon the drive, conditions and general wear and tear.

I am not sure but you may have some brakes related issue or may be dis balanced wheels on front left side.
Was the brakes too checked?
Was the wheel alignment and balancing done?

Hi,
Generally the tyre life ranges at around 40K KM,it can be slightly on higher side with proper wheel alignment and balancing.For the kind of problem mentioned, wheel balancing and alignment would help to overcome.

All car tyres have a small rubber dot between the threads if ur tyre is weared up to those marks it means its time to replace them generally it runs for 50k it depends on conditions of the cars suspension and tyre balancing
