    New wheel on my Ibis S3.

    Got home to find a piece of metal in my week old Michelin Pilot Sport 3. Nightmare. Off to the local tyre centre tomorrow for a repair.

    I think you should change them all, it's an improvement in my opinion

    On a more serious note, sorry to hear this and gutted for you as it's happened to me! Make's it worse when it's a fairly new tyre, I have a lot of sympathy!

    tbqfh putting a space saver in the boot of an s3 was a sin on audis part, no s model should have a space saver, or no quattro model for that matter
