How about purchasing another 18" wheel off a certain auction site or even Gumtree and getting a standard tyre fitted. Then you will definitely be OK. Sometime you can pick up wheels fairly cheaply. I managed to buy for 16" wheels for my T30 including three very good tyres for £40. As I wa...

My theory is 1) the trailer/caravan puts more weight on the towing car and it it is not rated for that load. 2) different size wheel has different rotation speed. That stresses the 4wd system and can damage it. With a trailer even more liklely. Yeah, but what if I make the spare same diameter, same...

Standard wheel/ tyre is 225/55R18 Spare wheel/tyre is 215/65R16 Which is something like a 18mm difference in rolling diameter. I noticed the tyre on my spare wheel has temporary writte...

If anyone uses one what would they recommend in terms of readings to keep an eye on ? ie coolant temperature, engine load etc etc. There are so many options and some are more important than others but I just wondered which are THE important ones to monitor.

I must be the only one never having seen the light come on - the bulb is ok as it comes on at start up check. Having said that I very rarely do short runs and even then the engine does get up to temp quickly and I reckon within around 5 miles so perhaps with mine being the facelift they did somethi...

Thanks Malcolm. Am I right in thinking that the radio does not lose its memory as a result of being powered down? I don't recall the fitter taking any precautions last time.

Mine lost it's memory and had to put the security code in. 2013 model.

I am now watching this thread with growing interest, as I will probably need some of the tips when I am able to go out again. I am currently staying at home on the government's advice as I am over 70. Haven't used the car at all in the past 2 weeks. Doesn't matter if you haven't used it. Just make ...
