  1. Nail in a run-flat?

    Alfa Giulia
    Hi all - I washed my car this morning and noticed a tack in the rear off-side tyre. It's the 255/40 R18 95W run-flat and the automatic pressure gauge is OK. I'll have it checked at my local Halfords but just wondered if you have any opinions on this/ Thanks.

  3. Nail in Rear Tyre - Advice Needed for Newbie!

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All, Newbie here hoping you can help! Noticed this morning somehow I got a screw lodged in my rear tyre of my Mito. I've attached pics and you will see it's just on the outskirt of the main tread. I have three questions: 1). Will I need to get the tyre replaced or can it be repaired...

    Alfa GTA
    Hallo GTA peeps, Not really a GTA question as it's for my Deutsche vehicle, but I would appreciate your judgement.. Car was up on a ramp today having its newly modified backbox fitted and I noticed a nail in one of the rear tyres. The rears have 6-7mm tread and are decent quality 265/35 19W...
  5. Touch-up or nail polish?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I bought a touch-up for Alfa red for £15 from the official accessories site and it's so bright it cannot be right! It would be better to borrow some comedy nail varnish from my daughter. I have tried shaking the lovely glass bottle to see if it gets any darker, to no avail. Anybody else been...
  6. Nail in rear tyre & 20psi

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I saw a nail in my rear Dunlop Sport 300 yesterday, so I checked pressure this morning and its 20psi. I need new ones on the back anyway with MOT coming, wasnt impressed with the Dunlops as well. I have Falken 916 on front and I dont find them brilliant either. What do you think of Firestone...

  9. Nail in Tyre

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have a nail in my tyre. One of my new 18inch tyres that have only done about 3K miles. Does anyone know if a nail in the centre of the tyre is a puncture repair job or a new tyre? I don't want some tyre shop telling me it is a new tyre when it can be repaired, as the 18s on the Brera don't...

    General Alfa Discussion

I then started her up again..no problems. On returning to the car later in the day she wouldn'y start...
  11. A nail in the coffin of F1

    General Alfa Discussion
    I couldn't believe what I was hearing during this weekend's F1 telecast. At one point the announcers started babbling about Jeff Gordon (yee-haw, left-turn now!) in an F1 car. I thought I was hearing things but sadly I was not. Well, at least they're not letting Gordon race. I also heard...
