yes this is In the right section just a free way to get a new tyre for you car drive your tyres till they are nearly done prob best to leave about 1k miles on them and pull out the spare stick it on and bung old wheel in the boot drive till other tyre is dead replace it. Great if you dont expect your car to get through another mot why send it to th scrap man with a good tyre in the boot??? But since you left about 1k miles on the new spare it can still be used
If you have alloys pay the fiver when you get the new tyre fitted to swap spare and alloy tyres over or if your as tight as me an dont care how it looks just run the steel till it dies.

For a minute there I thought it was a way to get a free new tyre, but in fact its saying dont give someone else a free new tyre if you can avoid it.

Goes without saying, really, but sometimes you can't avoid it.

One other way I avoid it here is with a DIY puncture repair kit. Used it loads of times and never had a problem with tyres so repaired, but I doubt they are still available in the UK, and may not even be legal.

IIRC UK tyre outlets weren't that keen on "professional" tyre repair either, and much preferred to sell you a new one, charging to dispose of the old one.

So that's another way. Emigrate Smile

Yeah, they're available. Bought one off eBay last year. Used it to repair two punctures (50% success rate).

if you use a wee back street guy or someone that fits part worns they should be able to do puncture repairs I get mine done for a fiver where I get my part worns from. Main prob round here is that punctures are normally due to pot holes so side wall damage therefore scrap the tyre
