    was in the middle of a dual carriageway, came to the conclusion it must be the bottom of a crane support, really fecking annoying. burst both tyres on the nearside and did that on the front. I tryed avoiding hitting the back after going over it with the front but it just clipped the back wheel taking a chunk out of it and the tyre. i would of been stranded if it wasnt for someone else who had also hit it. i stuck the spacesaver on the back and he gave me a lift with the flat wheel with no hole to the local tyre place(which was miles away), LONG DAY!

    OH and trying to fit my hydraulic jack under the car with 2 flat tyres and lowered suspension is not easy

    Gives you the perfect opportunity to fit some proper rubber as well, that is a seriously cheap & nasty tyre!
