      Exclamation Spare tyre in duster

      Do note i do not own a duster :

      I was a t a 3M Car care shop to buy a Meguiars Hot rims wheel cleaner. There was a 15 day Old duster that had come for under body rust treatment.

      During that time they took out the Spare Tire and what i seen were two distinct burn/Pressure marks.

      The silencer did not seem to be anywhere close to where these marks appeared and there was a definite scalding. ( not sure if the retainers were actually rubbing against it and generating heat to have this wear and tear.

      Duster owners get your spare tire checked and see if this was a one off instance.

      That looks pretty bad, May be he wouldnt have tightened it properly that the tyres are moving/rubbing? How will the tyre move?
      Another case of no proper PDI by Dealers!! Every dealer nowadays are being irresponsible in not doing PDI inspection for which we pay like almost 10-15k(all the service charges RTO charges etc)
