low profile tyres

  1. [Vectra B] [95-02] Damage sports shocks and low profile tyres can cause

    I had Vec B V6 front knocking for some time so pulled the struts out to see what the damage was. The top was rooted... bearing cracked and the top bush cracked. This is a result of unforgiving hard (but great handling) low profile tyres and sports shocks that transfer energy to the top of the strut.
