    Busted an alloy

    Forum Key Rings
    Yet more car woes. On my way home yesterday after a nice day at knockhill and just coming off slip road from the motorway and a loud bang and tyre monitor went nuts. Managed to nurse the car round to a layby and yep flat rear. Rather than piss about with the Jack and spacesaver I called a mate who was leaving after me to take me to house for trolley Jack and spare alloy and when changing I found that whatever had punctured the tyre had gone through the wheel as well. Gutted doesn't come close just glad I had bought a wheel last year as a spare.

    It’s an expensive puncture.
