Oh no

Thought I would do a bit of shooting today so on the way there I started hearing a knocking noise like a stone I\'n my tyre. Usually I would just leave it but thought I would check it so I pulled over and checked luckily and this is what I found!

Nah, they all do that.

I think the OP would know if his tyre was flat.

The Bridgestones on my car when I bought it wore badly in the corner too.

However the Pirreli tyres on now still look very even and they are runflats too.
