P*ssed off!

Well well, how things turn bad......

I got my first ever puncture on the weekend (of course it had to happen after the expensive tyres went on). Anyway, I figured it wasn't a big deal cus they only cost like $25 to have repaired but it turns out that I drove too far on the flat tyre and too much damage has been done on the inside to just repair the hole. So only a few weeks after putting them on one of my tyres already needs replacing and I have to go for a week with the ugly spare wheel on, so p*ssed off!!

Re: P*ssed off!

i did the same with my mums car, drove it till the sidewall was almost tearing apart... they were only 16's tho.

Do you know what caused the puncture?

I'll know for the future to not drive at all once I notice a flat, I honestly didn't realise i was doing any damage and the tyre looks fine from the outside. It was hard to pick that it was flat at all, 19's have a very low profile!

Oh crap! I have a tyre that has a very, very slow leak, so I pump it up every now and then to keep it going. LOL! I might have to get a newie... There goes another $150 - stupid Yoko A539s!
