    Tyre/size recommendations... mid-range

    Michelin have have had a price increase in march and pulled quite a bit of dealer support so expect the price to start rising. As a mid range, i'd recommend kumho or hankook.

    Volvo new tyres

    I'm hearing good things about them from various tyre dealers. As one said to me though, it's always going to be a jack of all trades and never a master of one! I guess it all depends what you want from a tyre. If you want a tyre that's going to provide adequate grip in normal driving conditions...

    Tyre keeps going flat??

    whoever you used are not "specialists" if they didn't change the valves at time of fitting the tyres. If the tyres not punctured & it's not a faulty valve then I suspect the tyre bead isn't seated properly. Tyre off, clean the inside of the rim, apply bead sealer and refit the tyre & re-...

    Unrelated question but what level of BMW warranty do you have? Also, do you have the BMW roadside breakdown service? I'm going to put one on my wife's 320D after seeing the service you've received from it - although it's unfortunate you've had to use it as much as you have! Lovely car, such a...

    tyre help

    The label ratings on a budget tyre such as a landsail mean nothing at all. unless it's from a well known manufacturer then take them with a pinch of salt. I'm seeing Chinese stuff not fit for a wheelbarrow with b & b ratings....

    Girlfriends and Renaultsport Clio's

    I let my partner drive any car I've ever had. Warned her that the cup had no driver aids when i had it but she don't drive particularly quickly and was fine. To my knowledge she's never damaged anything, if she did I'd probably be pissed off but accidents happen!
