Today i noticed the driver side tyre running low on pressure.

When i checked the pressure at the petrol station it was down to 20psi :(

So i filled up, now looks nice and healthy, however i was curious as to how it got so low so fast.

After checking the tyre, i found a huge nail in it :(

Lukily i have tyre insurance, but i have to find a local place which stocks Michelin Pilot Sport 265/30 ZR20's

Anyone know a good place online?

Hey Busi,

I feel your pain... Had the same problem last week with the right front tire. Worst part was, in the US (not sure about UK), they can't plug Z rated tires. Had to suck up the expense of a brand new tire... The nail sure was shiny though :D

Yep, they sure do. I had my tire plugged by Discount Tire not too long ago when I found a screw causing a leak. (Thank goodness for the TPMS alerting me to the issue.)

Do you have a Costco nearby, I think they have some sort of deal going with Michelin and there prices are usually pretty reasonable.

Well, Got the space saver on today. Could not do much over this weekend as i was out of town.

Tomorrow i will get advice from my local dealer where to buy the same tyre from, and also ring around a few places. Hopefully someone has it in stock.

Car looks ridiculous with 3 20" rims and 1 space saver.
