That awful tic tic noise from tyres

Post by ori » Fri Apr 02, 2021 7:52 pm

So driving along minding my own business with the roof down on a lovely sunny day. I notice a tic tic tic noise coming from the front tyre. I knew the day was too good to be true. Fingers crossed it will be a stone in the tyre, but obviously it was a screw.
Fingers crossed it hasn’t gone all the way in…..but obviously it has.
Fingers crossed it can be repaired……yes it can!
Didn’t fancy paying out for a news Michelin pilot super sport when it has 6.5mm tread on it!

Question is…..what are peoples views on repairs?

It was just about repairable. Any further out and it would have been a new tyre.
On the m40i I’ve been putting 33psi pressure. I know recommended is 32, but from past zeds I’ve always kept it slightly higher. Is that a bad idea?

I had a run-flat Pirelli repaired on my 1 Series in 2013 and ran it for another 11K miles without any problem.

When I check my tyre pressures I usually inflate them slightly above recommended pressures because over time they do seem to lose a little. Or maybe I should check them more often? :lol:

1 psi variance in 32 is negligible.
