    URGENT HELP NEEDED

    I have had to call the FTO into service due to the clutch going on my Pug TD... but today I found a screw imbedded in my tyre... so I am trying to find two decent tyres that can be fitted tommorrow without fail.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Kwik fit / National tyres want over £90 per piece....for an average tyre

    Tyre Size:

    205 / 50 / 16 / V rated

    Just ring around mate, there must be somewhere near you with a pair of half decent tyres? Just don't go to Kwik Fit, they are robbing gits!
    Did have: 94 Corrado R32
    Now have: 2004 Golf R32

    Its just an option that would you get you back on the road and more time to sort new tyres!
