Been catching up on a lot of things lately, so apologies for the lack of updates.
Had quite a weekend again, after last weekend in Penang this weekend was going fairly smoothly..
Until Sunday night when I was heading out to delivery some pictures to a client and I heard a weird noise coming from front driver side tyre..
I pulled over and to my dismay I had a mega flat, thankfully it failed gracefully near home and didn’t blow up when I was bombing back down the highway from Penang.
It was really really flat, so flat in fact it was coming off the rim! Ok so get the tools out, locking nut adapters and loosen the nuts before I jack it up.
Then time to jack it…man that was hard work.
Then whip the tyre off and get the big black bobby tyre on there…which limits me to 80km/h. Thankfully my spare had air in this time because I’d just filled it last weekend as part of the challenges in Penang.
The last time I used it…it was flat too! So always remember to pump air in your spare.
And well it’s always smart to change your tyres before they get too bald…I’d say mine was a little TOO worn, that’s why all the air came out.
Oh well. No damage done this time! The outsides looked fine, I think my camber was really messed up because all the tyres were worn differently.
Headed to the tyre shop on Monday afternoon to get a new set of shoes and get the camber electronically corrected.
Went for cheaper tyres this time as the old Pirelli Dragons don’t seem to be so good any more (I’ve been using them since 2005).
I got myself a set of Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 with alignment and balancing + camber adjustment for all 4 wheels. Total damage RM1075.
