sorry to vent my anger on here but I am really f*cking annoyed.

Just popped out in me T4 didn't even get to the end of my road, clunk clunk clunk, the familiar sound of a puncture,

On closer inspection I find that my rear SIX WEEK OLD TYRE has the BIGGEST bit of metal wedged in it.

about an inch across right in one of the groves, not a hope it's repairable, 70 worth of Tyre ****ed and I now gotta try and find one to match caus they were a set of four and my van is undriveable,


Had such a nice day as well

B*llocks :(

Don't you have to have sex to get pregnant?





And i don't belive it, its get worse, it hapened out side bathwick tyres (where i bought them from)

I didn't think anything of it until i remove it, its a wheel balancing weight, the sort that clips on the side of the rim.

Not even sharp which is worse caus its made a massive rough hole to the tyre.



My guess is its one they have removed looking at the state of it as i heard the noise just as I drove passed.


Hmmmm

I know how you feel, whilst out and about yesterday, pulled in to park a little on the sharp side, kerrunch, :eek: kerbed the n/s/f alloy and took a chunk out of the tyre :eek: , Wheels ain't been on a week :(, which really annoyed me, to make matters worse, some dozy f**king pedestrian knocked off the N/S wing mirror. ( which i have managed to re-attach, but the 'leccy adjusment no longer works. :(:(

I don't think I can prove it


But its the f*cking tyre place I bought the tyres off, fault!!!

Gonna go talk to them tomorrow as its easiest place to get it replaced as 1min from my house but might try and persuade them to do some kinda discount as I

A: bought the tyres off them

B: it happened right out side their premises, bit of a coincidence although I know there is no way I can prove it came from them (so won't even try).



Worst out come is going to be 70 for a new tyre,

Best would be it's repaired.. and if so for free (they did once before for free as it was only a couple of weeks after I bought the tyre)

63 for new tyre, at least its an identical tyre so I still have matching tread patterns etc.


Could think of better things to spend the 60 on tbh,



Oh well van back on the road at least :)
