    A very good friend of mine worked for National Tyre Service and put me off buying them when I was a tugger.

    I'm sure I wouldn't be able to change the wheel on the MH anyway. I was thinking of carrying a spare tyre (but not the whole wheel) - any comments on that idea?

    Hi Puddleduck.
    Some one wherever you are can change a tyre on a wheel,never found anyone yet that could "Knit" a wheel. So,half a loaf is better than none,get that spare tyre BOUGHT !
    I am lead to believe that you must carry a spare wheel in Spain by law,so with just the tyre....... it is just an infringement ? LOL

    PS. If the rim is a bit... Curly ?after the puncture. You would be surprised how much a bit of heat and a 2lb hammer can make a buckled rim take a tyre back on

    If you have a spare wheel ..and you have a puncture..you just change the wheel take the punctured wheel to a tyre fitter job done.

    If you have a band fitted and No spare wheel you are stuffed.. You will have to wait for a recovery service (do not have a flat tyre on the Hampshire part of the M3/A303 its called nightime robbery).

    You pay your money and take your choice.
