    i feel for you matey.. Mrs GSi's mum lives in Tandridge, and she's had the inner side walls of two of her vectra Sri's tyres on tandridge lane, where the poor state of the edge of the carraigeway ( where it's been eroded away ).. cost her £250 for two new Eagle F1's..

    where did you shred your's?..

    Get in touch with the local council regarding these problems. They should have a regular inspection of all roads (and pavements) within their area to find these problem areas. Normally it is only the heavier used routes that are worked on first, due to the amount of traffic that passes through them.

    If their inspection logs show that the road has been like that for a while, you would be within your rights to try to claim compensation for the damage to your motor, dependant on when it was first logged (as they are allowed time to schedule the repairs).

    As they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Don't get me started on the state of these ****in roads. I'm pi$$ed off with having to dodge potholes and sunken manhole covers every farkin day!

    I'm originally from Swansea and when you tell people you live in Surrey, the first thing everyone says is, 'Oh, very posh!' You wanna bet? These are the worst roads i've ever driven on. Surrey is one of the most sought after and expensive areas to live in the UK so what the hell are they spending their money on?

    Borat came here 6 months ago and left for Kazikstan laughing his a$$ off!

    'Iz nize. I go back home where horse and cart make more comfortable yes?'


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    I took photos of the damage I had done, and the pothole in the road and sent them to the local council (not something to give scale helps) and EVENTUALLY the council re-imbursed me the cost of one tyre and one alloy wheel. When I say eventually it took nearly 2 months, but I found a second hand alloy and replaced it with that so actually got paid for the damage


    Without people reporting damage like this, and asking/demanding reimbursement there will never be anything happen.
