Just an update regarding the tyres. One of the rears when removed, had a screw in it on the inside edge. Luckily it hadn't pierced the inner tyre but would have. I now have 4 new tyres.

Try and ignore the aggro and your bank balance. It's always a good feeling to have new rubber on all the wheels. :)

Just don't mention what type of tyres you have.
The cross-climate and winter tyre lot will be out from their summer hibernation soon.

Yep, I was going to dump all the tyres in April anyway as they would have been 5 years old. The new ones are the OEM Pirellis and they are so much quieter with softer rubber and more tread. Very noticable. Luckily I have a car fund account that I put into every month for such expenses. I have also let rip at the council in Llandudno about that pothole.

Go on the website for "Fixmystreet" or "Potholes UK" (I think)
If it was already reported and the council hadn't fixed it then bang them the bill for a claim.
