Are you in RAC or AA?

 

AA, but car now back at digs. Got a wee electric compressor in there but only drives a couple miles before it's under 10psi again. 

 

Called in to Kwikfit n they said no chance with what they have there - and please don;t all start shitting on them...they fill a niche.

So on a similar subject, the car has Jade R wheels with these silly little wheel nuts... but the spare is a standard GT wheel (with a brand new P Zero :o ). Will the same wheel nuts hold the standard wheel on or is it the usual Toyota flat washer bit?

 

 

Only needs to get me three miles to the tyre place...

Are those steel you have on there.. Because I have spline versions and the sockets are very strong... And the amount of times I've taken them off and theve lasted 4 years so far.hope you get one to sort you out

Just replaced all the nuts, lucky I did since half of them were rusted to the point that a slightly used key would strip the splines :o

Just sayin' :o

 

Old and New. No, I didn't replace with the same style, I used the torx ones.
