    So annoying and look at all that tread depth, typical! We've also had 3 punctures in the last few months, I can't remember one for years before that so hopefully ours and your run of bad luck is over.

    It really makes me:puke2: the state of the roads, not being cleaned regularly potholes everywhere if they get any worse we will all be driving 4x4s.I had only had my RS3 for for three weeks and hit a raised manhole in ongoing roadworks resulting in it needing wheel alignment and balancing but successfully claiming the cost back off the contractor via the local council,then a month or so ago having a nail through a perfectly good tyre resulting in replacing all four,we should all stop paying our road tax until the roads are properly maintained.

    Luckily, I,ve a spare 225/35/19 so now it's off to the tyre fitters just hoping they don't damage the face of the new wheel !!

    Well, I managed to find a good tyre place and the tyre was F**ked (technical term for you there) However the screw had rubbed against the Alloy on the inside, Luckily though not in an area to affect mounting the new tyre !!!

    If only guys would stick to bonding instead of screwing Sean, if only...

    There will be some thinking that's me being rude Sean, but I'm sure you'll see the relevance.

    Happy for you that it's sorted

    Hi John,

    Believe me i was just happy to find a Tyre place that understood the importance of using the correct tools and procedure to change the tyre without scratching or damaging the alloy !

    Seems so many tyre places think I'm trying to tell them to 'suck eggs' so to speak !

    At least the Gripfix wouldn't kill the bloody tyre eh John ?

    Not yet Sean, not yet. I'll let you know when I swap over; ambient temps need to be constantly around 7ºC and below and were still way above that; mid November for me (in Staffordshire) is about right.
