    If you're going to have a puncture .......

    Whilst my wife's "A" class was in for a service with MB last week it was found that both rear springs had snapped. Declined MB's quote and took it to my local Tyre/Service centre and whilst there on Monday ordered 2 new Goodyear Assymetric 3's for my C207 to replace the rear Continentals which...

    Puncture repair

    Found an almost flat NSR tyre this morning, pumped it up, went for a 10-mile drive and then to my local MB, only to discover this: Luckily, it was repairable - I fully expected them to come up with a bill for a new tyre - so I was on my way shortly thereafter. Now, the question is: how...

    How to deal with potential puncture on SLK R170?

    Hello and apologies if this has been done before, the search function is just not working for me. Because my little car has differently sized wheels or tyres front and back, is there an accepted way of dealing with a potential puncture, other than on a breakdown lorry? I realise there is 0%...

    Hi, just noticed a nail in my rear tyre, can anyone recommend a decent tyre repair place in Quinton, Birmingham or perhaps Halesowen? It's still got some life in it, and will probably get a full set in a round 5000 miles or so!! Need to get it done tomorrow, as will probably start to leak in...

    Not a slow puncture

    I thought I had a slow puncture on my front nearside wheel. Its been losing 5 or 6 psi over a week. Had a chance to take it to get looked at yesterday. After removing the wheel and dipping in the big water bath it turns out the seal was not airtight. So the tyre guy took the tyre off with...

    Space saver spare question

    So I've owned my MB for all of 7 days now and yesterday i got a puncture! Now that's just bad luck and you've got to just swallow those ones.

    Grrr!! Slow puncture on my S211!

    Just decided to take the Merc for a run today and guess what - flat tyre! :( Looking closely reveals a nice nail head poking out, near the tyre wall, so that's probably not repairable!! Anyone know any deals on Conti 2s, 245/40/18 anywhere?

    Puncture not repairable

    Hi, my wife was unfortunate to get a punture only 4 days after picking up a new B180 Sport. The local tyre place said it couldn't be repaired as the small screw had entered the tyre too close to the shoulder - it is quite close to the side wall, but still just on the treaded part. Was this a...

    Just noticed that I have a puncture so I had to whack on the spare. It's never been used before and it's the first time that I have lifted the boot liner up. So nice and clean in there. The tool-kit is also un-used. In the tool-kit is a little alloy bar with a knurled effect on one end and...
