    Tyre replacement - pairs or all four?

    Hi lads, I have done nearly 27,000 in my kombi T32 on continentals. The fronts are needing done and the backs I reckon I will get another few thousand miles out of them. Would you’s just change the fronts or do all 4 at the same time? Your knowledge would be appreciated :)

    Tyre hum or wheel bearing...

    Evening all. My 2016 LWB T32 has had an annoying hum from the rear since I purchased it last year (and probably earlier...). I noticed on the long drive home but wasn't too concerned as a hum from the rear can only really be tyre or wheel bearing related. With new alloys on the list of mods I...
