    At least its in the middle of the tread

    We had a customer turn up in his new motor this week.

    He has just got a Bentley Continental GT, and put 5k worth of 22" wheels on it.

    In the first week he buckled the outer rim of the nearside front

    When i was looking over the car, i heard a hissing. Ran my hand round the offside rear tyre and asked him to roll it forward. Found a screw right in the edge of the tyre tread, unrepairable.

    The tyres and wheels were brand new, to say he was gutted is an understatement!

    So count yourself lucky i guess!
