Re: lockrite help

I have just put on second hand tyres and my locker now ratchets in a straight line , I think this is due to slightly different tyre sizes on each side .Mine still ratchets both ways when turning though .By different sizes I mean one is worn more than the other . Anyone got any comments on how long they will last doing this as I am not in the postition to by new tyres now so will have to not drive it if it is no go for it .
Cheers monty

Re: lockrite help

try swapping some of the front tires back until you get a set of two that are the same size... you should be able to get a match of 2 same size tires out of a set of 4.
