    Left work on friday after quite a good week, wandered down to the car to find my rear nearside tyre looking a bit sorry for itself. On closer inspection theres a bloody great screw in it :motz:(the head of it was pretty damn big) of course it was really near the edge of the tyre so no chance of a repair. On goes the lovely space saver (complete with fluorescent yellow stickers telling me not to exceed 50mph) and then the 15 mile drive home. Ah well other than the car looking rather stupid (with 1 tyre about 1/6th the width of all the others) I got home fine and went to a merityre local to me and got me a Goodyear F1 GSD3 XL (225,45,17") ordered as I already had 2 of these on the front and they've been great so far (£114 fitted).

    Just felt like sharing my experience with you as I was not best pleased. No doubt I will find another screw or nail in the same tyre in a months time (sods law)

    Nothing more annoying than seeing you have a screw in a tyre!!

    It has happened to me a couple of times :(
