    Thumbs up It's not all Grim up North. Cheers Peelmeister.

    Clocked outta work Mon a.m. Great, flat tyre. Not to worry on with the spare in the pi**ing down rain.
    Jacked car up, whipped wheel off, put pushbike tyre on (sorry spacesaver) jack collapsed, useless crocodile piece of junk.

    Trapped me thumb Now resembles a gorillas finger!

    Anyhoo, drove home @ a snails pace, soaking wet. Stuck car on drive, jacked it up on a REAL jack & swopped both fronts for a pair I purchased off Peelmeister ( Andy ) last year.

    Whipped her into MCC yesterday for tracking aligning, sorted.
    Plenty of rubber on the deck for the monsoon season we're enduring.

    Thanx to Andy again for the rubber, cheers mate.

    no worries at all fella, glad you got to use them eventually

    I'm currently stuck with a flat as I cant and the AA cant get teh locking wheel nut off! the key has disintergrated and I'm waiting for a new one to arrive - then I should be able to put the spare on.

    Got a 17" spare Bigtee but that went a few months ago, stock piling them ready for a full set of new rubber.
