    Thumbs down Oh bottom... Sods law has struck again!

    I ordered two new tyres for the back on Friday which I'll be getting fitted on Saturday next weekend. Problem is, I hit a big lumpy thing turning a tight corner (that'll be a curb ) and now one of the back tyres has a bulg in the side wall.

    Doesn't seem to be getting worse and I don't have to use the car all week but I do have to cover about 250 miles to work and back. There is no way I can get it replaced now and I don't want to use the space save...

    Do you recon it will make it? I can't see any options right now and it will take days for anywhere to get in the tyres I want...

    No chance - make alternative arrangements. The space saver is also not an option for this sort of mileage. Had to use it once for 50 miles in the dark and snow - never to be repeated......!!! :-((

    just buy a cheepy, then order what you want. maybe then at a later date buy a full size spare and use the tyre on that?
