I got a slow puncture the other day on the motorway. Car went a little 'wobbly' and I pulled into a service station that was conveniently placed. The tyre was almost flat and steaming hot. As with many new cars, mine (a 2008 Ford Galaxy) does not have a spare wheel, but a compressor and gel stuff (let's not be technical here!) is under the seat. So I let it cool and put some air in (but no gel), Went for a coffee and when I came back it was still fully inflated. I drove home on slower roads making it safely. now to the crux of my tale.... I called into a number of garages, including the Ford dealership. The tyre is goosed with a damaged wall. They all checked their systems. The same tyre that Ford fit as standard cost Â£160. But it is not available for a few weeks - Goodyear have them on back order. I ended up having to go to KwikFit <spit> as they were the only outfit within safe range who had one. Â£190 fitted. FOR ONE BLOODY TYRE!!! Apparently the MkIII Ford Galaxy is the only car in the world that uses this size tyre and so very few are made. Why do they do this? There are so many tyre sizes available why can't they make wheels that fit the available tyres? Just wanted to moan about it really!
