    The tyres on my transit have cracks between the tread pattern but they don't go down. Blistered paint and rust round the bead seating caused the tyres on my trailer to deflate.

    My last car had similar cracks in the tread and would go down slowly. Went to it one day and it was flat. There was another crack i couldn't see all round the sidewall on the inside, plus a big while where it had given way. The tyre was less than 3 years old

    Not really Keith,I always tell people to go for the simplest and cheapest option first, I've two compressors in "stores",by changing to another would probably have"cured" the fault but I would have been left with a compressor which I would have thought was faulty when there is nothing wrong with it.;):)

    Sympathy reply. Storage is a bit of an awkward one, but you could try getting a local authority garage (the rent is generally reasonable, but you can't get turfed out as easily as a private rent). The workshop bits are probably more awkward, because you sort of need somewhere you can use them, but fingers crossed you find somewhere!

    A lot will go in the Landy. Somewhere safe though you know how keen they are for series. Time to get a trailer? You can long term lend mine but it’s tidgy and I can’t remember where I left it.

    I like your enthusiasm.. there's a bit more than will fit in the back of an 88.. or even a 109!! Not to mention my dads 86" that's just a rolling chassis at the moment

    I think under EU law they have to last 3 years? That should have been accepted by the UK. Might be worth a call to the manufacturer via where you had them fitted and maybe a call to trading standards. I've found firms watch the Trust Pilot website very carefully.

    Lucky in the sense that you wasted no time because you were able to spot a fault that many would have missed;)

    Nothing to do with Range Rovers unless it is an oil burner running on HVO but a topic we've touched on before and I think this guy is spot on.

    A small win is still a win.

    Silly question, if i run on LPG and see the injection times fall on the petrol side, that's because it's running to rich on LPG, isn't it? I need to lean it off a bit
