Question about 2007 Mini Cooper Convertible
Just had 2 new tires installed on the rear and the 2 best tires of the other 4 put on the front...had is aligned. 50 miles later, the light for tire damage came on and stays on. Visually inspected all tires..can't see any problems...any ideas?
The air pressures may be off. If those are confirmed good, you have to reset the system . You can do that with your on board computer.

When these lights come on together often times you need to replace a wheel speed sensor. check for the blue connectors under each fender well and make sure all of them are plugged in. 90% that I have seen are the front sensors that go bad, but you will not know unless codes are pulled by the dealer. If it is not the wheel speed sensors then it possibly could need a abs control module.

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

You are right about the quality of ride,and would probably notice better handling as well.However when selecting new tires you need to awnser 3 basic questions.Where do you live?,what type of driver are you?And of course, what is your price range.If you live where you get snow and ice your going to need all-season tires.If you dont have to worry about that I would go with summer tires.They tend to offer better grip and ride and are also cheper.The down side is they tend to wear quicker.As far as brand,if money isnt an object go with bridgestone,michelin,or goodyear.If it is there are many good tires for less,check out sites like tirerack.com and you can read customer reviews.Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your help, advice, and suggestions. I will definitely buy some quality tires. I am so very glad for the FixYa website!!"
The computer you are looking for is called an ASC control unit and is located in the right hand side of the engine bay.
I advise you have the fault codes checked first as a new ASC control unit is not cheep and will require coding.
