Getting a puncture is more about your luck than anything else.Sport Maxx GT
Looking back at my original post I think most of that was anger.
I was also attributing the fact that my other car I've had for 8 years has only had 1 flat and the new one has had 2 in one month after only 3 months of owning it.
I'm sure there decent tires they just seem prone to punctures. But I guess thats pretty much just how low profiles are.
Wear rate on the tyres is good, i've done 17000 miles on the Maxx GT and there is still about 3mm of tread left on them. Also I rotated them halfway through so they have worn evenly all round.No idea about wear rate yet though, cos the mileage on my car is still low (5400 miles) as it does not get used on a daily basis.
It's nothing to do with the tyre, the fact that you've had two punctures. I had to replace 3 tyres within the first 5000 miles due to punctures. £150 a tyre. I wasn't pleased either but it had to be done.
Rab is running on 18s with 245\45\18s as far as I can remember, Rab can correct me if i'm wrong but at that size something like Goodyear F1 Asymmetric cost about £140 a tyre including VAT delivered to your door.Rab, where do you buy your tyre's at £150.00 as the best price I could get was £255.00 + vat.
