I ran over a piece of curled up metal about as thick as your pinky finger and half as long. Looked just like a huge hollow spike... absolutely incredible seeing it sticking out of the tire. The tire went flat in about 15 seconds.
Thankfully, it was on a company van and not my Legend :D

yetch, I don't know if you have access to discount tire, but they have free replacement for situations like yours. buy your new tires from there and you won't have to worry about it again.

lol.. a bit of karma my way yesterday(finally).. was driving around(very nervous bout bhg) tryin to find somwhere with second hand tyres and absolutely no one sells them, apparently you need a special license to resell them(more bureaucracy) then with my last straw i pop into a kwik fit only to have the same response :confused: but.. as im walkin back to my car one of the guys goes 'pisssst.. oi how many you want?'..
"a.. wot.. tyres?"
'yeh.. how many '
and he looks at my rear tyre(which has a bald shoulder) and says he could give me two for 50quid.. i though he said 50 each and told him to replace the punctured one.. he said you have to dissapear for bout half so i went and bought a new thermostat then went to bk and had a burger.. then he comes walkin over and goes yeah done just pay me here, which i did... got back over there and theres two new tyres(sunni's.. never heard of them but who cares) on the front with the best of the old ones on the back.. well stoked.. well stoked.. but.. on my way home the tyre had the same prob as the other one and was flat by the time i got home(the thing was the steering showed no sign of a flattie.. no pull, nothing).. so in the pouring rain i put the space saver back on drove back down there and he gave me another tyre to replace the one that was stuffed for free.. lol.. saying anything else you come and see me ok.. lol.. for sure bro , for sure :D
