    Tyre was low the other day - thought it might have just been with speed bumps at work. Pump up but has gone down a bit again today. Just checked it and there is a small screw or rivet in the tyre tread - not the side wall.

    Is it ok to get a Z rated tyre fixed or am I best puttin new tyre on ???

    Its my first preferred option Gerry - not sure of best place to take it - any one recommend a good fitter / repair centre that WONT damage my alloy :roll:

    Got it done at hi Q

    Thanks for posts guys - didnt really want to leave it too long as i need car for bank holiday weekend- cost me £16 :shock: - better than a new tyre I suppose. Good service by the guys though. Took good care of the alloy.

    John, this is the second tyre due to onsite debris !!! :evil:

    gonna put a note into site me thinks :wink:

    There's a few people with a screw loose at our place - just wish they wouldnt leave em on the car park :roll:
