Now now folks - keep it friendly. I'm all for a bit of banter though ;)

If you don't like a post, ignore it, usually the best way.

Don't make me bash your heads together gents. :lol:

Mind you, if I was Fi.Es.Ta I think I'd be in a bad mood too. That Ashes defeat was just embarrassing for the Aussies. ;)

I dont know if it was a pothole or just some bad cracks in a certain part of the road that I drive on quite regularly, which does give the car one hell of a jolt. I came out yesterday morning to wash my car and as I normally do, took the wheels off to clean and polish the alloys when I noticed on the
N.S.F. tyre it had a two inch slit and steel wires sticking out of the slit. I telephoned my local Tyre Shop (open on Sundays), to see if they had a tyre, as I would not trust it as it was in the side-wall. He ordered me a new tyre which was in by 9.30 a.m. this morning, and I had that fitted. It cost me 86.00, but the sad part was that the damaged tyre still had a good 6mm of useable tread over the whole surface. Not a happy bunny! GRRRRRRRRRRR :angry:

How annoying is that!!! And with 6mm of tread aswell :(

If you think 86 is bad, my dad run into a pothole (in our volvo s40) and bent the alloy out of shape causing the tyre to deflate slowly. He didn't notice the bent alloy so just pumped the tyre up. It deflated whilst he was driving it without him noticing which knackered the sidewall completely.

So for that one pothole, it cost 300 for the new alloy, and 130 for the new pirelli tyre. !Removed! expensive!!!
