Kuga wheel and tyre swap

When buying the car it came with 3 continental and 1 Bridgestone. I'm guessing owners had a puncture that couldn't be repaired and put an old tyre back on for sale.

Bought a wheel and tyre combo from eBay for 80 notes, tyre has 5mm.

So I'm swapping out, with the plan in a few months to replace all 4 tyres, as other 3 are fast decreasing, including some heavy edge wear on front.

May even get a full wheel refurbished done. But they are hardly marked.

Pic is the bridgestone ive taken off.

Ford kuga 2.0 tdci 163 mpg

Bank holiday weekend, lots of non town driving meant average improved.  Average speed 28mph. 500 miles on a tank.
