    Default Just pulled a screw out of my tyre.

    Just pulled a small screw out of my OSR tyre, It's not leaking, but I have a bit of a hole left. It cant be repaired as it's apparently too near the sidewall.

    I'm not too bothered as I was about to replace the rears anyway, but do you think it will be allright for a day or so, till I can get in and get them replaced?

    It's on the treadblock nearest the sidewall, Like I say it isn't leaking ( put a blob of 'fairy' on it to check )

    Seriously though, sensible driving until it's changed and you should have no trouble.

    At the moment, that would sum up my luck.

    I think I'll go for the Linglong performers at £52 a throw!!!

    Heh, I got a mothering big bolt in a tyre - the car had 30 miles on the clock. The tyre went down in about 10 seconds, thankfully I'd just parked outside the office.

    Then again, it was a Pirelli - worst tyre I ever used those. I'd rate the £30 Kingstars above the Pirelli P6000.
