Went over a deep pothole and the tyre went flat. Used the tyre kit and drove 1 mile but the valve had been damaged so the foam came out of it and then sealed up, so i couldn't blow it up again. Need to buy a spare.
Spare tyre kit cost me around £95 and seems a steal. Even get to keep the inflater - useful for a number of things. Seems a no-brainer to me and a much more safety orientated thing to have, especially if you puncture in the dark. Love the way the wheel trims are behind the wheel nuts - no chance of them being lost while driving. Replacements are cheap as well, at around £8 a corner.
I wondered how much Kia would charge for replacement wheel trims, my girlfriend has a Picanto GS and has kerbed a couple, I have alloys on my SE so she wont be driving my Picanto until she kicks the habit of hitting kerbs! :huh:
