Oh dear Had a go round under the van to night
I took the wheels off ready to get the tires changed
First, the tires fitted are the wrong load rating at 347 kg max per tire I need 425 kg
And second the spare that at first glance looked fine? When I looked further the load rating is in LBS not KG this is a good indicator that it is so old it was fitted before the metric system was introduced into the uk???
3 new tires required then
The wheel bearing that was getting a bit hot had very little grease round it and what there was is contaminated with moisture at least the bearings do not look damaged at all Good clean up and new grease with a little copper ease should sort it out
The rest of the gubbins under the van makes it look like the previous owners have taken good care of it, all the brake cables are greased up and in good order, as are the axel joints So all in all, not too bad at all
