Re: *** The official car accident thread***

Something I doh understand about trinis, why hit the wall then leave the vehicle there. Clearly that van can back out, why is it they have to remain and make a further spectacle and make phone calls etc. Same ting with the tantys that drive into the stores, atms etc.

The vehicle would pull in the direction of the wheel that is further back. Cars that were involved in accidents and not repaired to original specs have this problem. The p...

Re: Defective tyres

The tyres CAN cause pull, easiest, fastest way to know is switch front tyres left to right. If the pull changes direction or stops, its the tyres. If it stays the same then its one of the other factors spann outlined above. Cheaper tyres tend to be more susceptible what is called ply steer. This hap...
