And I've kissed enough frogs in my time too!!! Anyay, I wasn't concentrating, and hit the edge of a curb at low speed while pulling up outside the house, but the sharp edge of the paving slab has gouged a little hole of rubber - about the size of a little finger nail - just above the rim of the alloy. Do I need to buy a new tyre? Is it legal? Is is SAFE? Any advice would be appreciated.
