    Bit confused by the manual on winter tyre fitment. It says the rears are either of the below. FA: 255/35 R19 96 RA: 285/30 R19 98 I thought the rear alloys were staggered so how can you fit rears that are identical to the front?! What sizes of 19 winters are people running on their...

    Odd Tyre Pressure Warning

    Was driving my w169 A Class yesterday and out of the blue got a big red 'Check Tyre pressures' warning on the display. All tyres looked ok,pressures normal. Then asked to reset pressure warning system which I did and went on my way. Anyone had anything similar?

    Spare tyre and tyrefit bottle

    It only just occurred to me that it's slightly odd that my car has the tirefit temporary fix can, but also has a spare wheel. Is this perhaps because the spare won't fit over the front discs? Or is it just a belt and braces approach?
