    First blow out on the T6 today... luckily I was parked up when the tyre exploded.... woke a few people up when it went..! If it hadn't been heard and witnessed by 2 other people I would of assumed someone had put a knife through the sidewall... :eek: Luckily I had my spare recently swapped out...

    Space saver spare wheel options - Highline 4motion

    Hi - I'm trying to work out whether there is a space-saver spare wheel option for a T6. Van is a Highline T32 Kombi 4Motion. Wheels are 17 inch Devonports. Am converting the van and will lose the spare wheel space to a water tank. I have had a read of the existing threads but not found a...

    Oko Tyre Sealant

    Does anyone have any experience of Oko tyre sealants? It seems like a cost effective way to prevent flats. It seems very expensive to have professionally installed, but seems like a diy job By removing the valve core and squirting it in.

    Happy Friday The 13th!

    Well, it had to happen sooner or later! I decided to take a different route home tonight....and this happens! No one died so it's no more than an inconvenience. This might be a really silly question....and I think I know the answer, but does anyone out there think this tyre might be repairable...

    Word Of Warning!

    Driving home from work today, a saw a T5 camper with a puncture, so stopped to offer a hand.... He was driving a mate’s camper, and caught a puncture on the 20” rims fitted by the converter. The locking wheel nut was a 17mm, which meant the 19mm wrench didn’t fit (I had a 17mm with me as I was...

    Spare Wheel - do I need to change from 16” if I’ve gone to 235/50/18”?

    Afternoon all, Quick question. I am planning to put some 18" alloys on my van with 235/50 R18 tyres fitted. Will it still be ok to use the original supplied spare wheel with alloys of this size in the event of a puncture? Thanks

    Yet again... tyre repair

    I am off to get a tyre repaired. Another screw in the Cali - second time in this, third time overall (the Subaru got one a month ago); both have fairly heavy duty All Season tyres - ARRGHHH!!!!

    the two front tyres have about 2.6mm tread, the backs with about 7.0. Typically the back near side has a slow puncture courtesy of a nail!!!!! I’m not a fan of hankooks, which tyre do you guys recommend? Any good deals out there?

    Spare tire or glue sh***t?

    My car was ordered with 18'' tires, in the vw catalogue it's stated to have a spare tire bolted under the rear of the van. Well no tire there, just a box with some glue-stuff to be used in case of flat tire. I called the dealer and asked why i did not get a real spare tire. He told me that if...
