    Default One of those days!!

    I'm on the late shift this week, so I don't get out of my pit till near on 9am, leave for work about 11.

    Sharon phoned me at 10.45, to tell me when she got in her car, she thought she saw a nail or something in my tyre, check it before I set off on the motorway.

    As it was, it was a screw, but only just sort of in the tread. Took it out, no problems. Then I noticed the other pins in the tyre. God knows what I've run over, but there was three more pins in the tyre, two again just fell out, the other definately punctured it.

    So £175 later... Didn't get time to shop around, but not a bad price for a pair of Eagle F1's!! No point replacing just the one, as they only had about 3-4 mm left, mind you, they'd done 13 months and 26000 miles, so not too bad!!

    Recommend Top Gear tyres in Reading, Good price, quick courteous service and another Vectra admirer 'Lovely looking motor this...'

    Took the sting out of the bill!!!!

    If she hadn't have said, I'd never have even noticed it!

    Wouldn't really have been much fun if it let go at 80 mph!!
