Hoping for some tyre advice please?
My 3.2 Sport came with Velocity Raptor tyres 265/65/R17.
Yesterday while on the False Bay coastal road I had a puncture on the front, and before I could stop safely the sidewall was torn.
Not sure if it was because I had to go about 200m before pulling over, or if these tyres have weak sidewalls?
The remaining tyres still have a bit of tread left.
The reviews on the Velocity Raptor aren't great as far as I can see, so I'm not that keen to stick with them.
I would like to get a tyre that is used as a spare for now, that I can then upgrade all the tyres later to.
I use the Sport mainly for trips in the Cederberg, a bit of sand (Bok Punt) and a bit of town driving.
I posted this in the Mitsubishi forum but perhaps it's better here?
