1/. Ok, im intrigued how you punctured the sidewall of your tyre.....wasn't damaged "after" your flat was it ?sweeny said:Has anyone else had to replace a 16" runflat tyre yet. My dealer quoted me £258!!! (for one tyre)
The puncture is on the sidewall and can't be repaired.
Kwikfit have quoted £132 which is a bit more like it.
Anyone know of anywhere else which is cheaper??
You mean they didn't really care if they put big gouges or scrapes on your alloys? It didn't bother them at all??Hanny said:.....They also didn't seem to be too fussed about my tyres being run flat and whether thier equipment will do the job without ballsing the alloys up.
If you upgrade to Chilli/Runflats you don't get the MMS and the space saver wheel is 15" in diameter so it's useless too!Minty said:Red Hot mini,
When ordering from new, you can have a 'space saver' spare which fits underneath the car. about £25 i think.
You should have a MINI Mobility System (MMS), have you looked under the boot carpet??
