2009 Sportage 2.0 crdi 4
Garage has just fitted new tyres to front wheels, same name as existing but H/P Sport instead of H/T 687 which has different profile which increases total diameter by 15mm. Now when coming to as stop in traffic get a bump and lurch forward, seems to originate from transfer case. This did not occur until tyres fitted.
Thank you for your assistance.
Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
On this vehicle you MUST have all four tyres with the same size .
this is very important as the 4 must turn at the same speed .
The tyre shop should of known this, so go back and have them replace the tyres with the correct size ..
This can cause problems with the AWD/4X4 system as you said, so have this done as soon as possible.
