Tyre blow out
Was in the market for some 17" sportlines and was planning on ordering next week.
However i may have to get them sooner. On way to work this morning the tyre wall failed on me causing massive rip in tyre and obviuosly a blowout!!! luckily was only going 40 down slip road to bypass when it happened, slowed down to 20mph hazards on and managed to make it on flaring rubber to the train station half a mile away.
Had to come to work and am leaving early to fit the spare. All it means i will have to go through alfa accessories and pay 500 quid for set of sportlines and am going for the falken 512s for the tryes, a nice 49 quid a tyre from Camskill.co.uk next day delivery free.
Anyway let me know your thoghtson tyres etc.... i think they are a good decent midrange to budget tyre and only doing 7000 miles a yr should last at least 2-3 years
