Something felt lumpy in the front end...

I bought a set of four part worn tyres just before Christmas but one of the front Toyo's felt a bit lumpy today. Good thing I noticed! I didn't notice at the time but this tyre was made in November/December 2009 which is obviously way too old to be using. With the amount of tread on it the car it came from must have been sitting around barely getting used before it was scrapped (another Swift as it so happens).

 

Turns out my spare is at 50% pressure and my air pump blew it's fuse as soon as I switched it on... One of my front brake calipers is sticking slightly and the rear drum on the same side is rubbing the pad at a certain point in it's travel too. Brilliant timing.
