U did a great mistake by driving 20 miles.. i'm sure u should have worn out your tires and it would have cost u more.

Ha .. Really a pity..
But for a driver , to know the basics of changing tyres is very important.. It will come handy when things go mad like this...

One time that happened to us, and our spare was flat....

Hope you didn't ruin your wheel driving that far like that.

I am glad you made it home OK. Things do happens ometimes beyond our control, but I would check all my tires out really well if I were you. Blowouts generally don't happen when tires are still good, though it is possible.

I know...! I don't have the foggiest as how to change a tyre! When I asked my instructor to teach me, he said: "all u have to do is to stand there on the road and hope some gentleman will be kind enough to stop!" Rolling Eyes

I know better now (damn that instructor!)...so I just keep the breakdown company's number handy just in case! Wink
