Blow out

I was merrily driving last night in Dubai to collect my new watch, when I thought the tyre had a blow out.

It turns out the I destroyed it by driving on a rapidly deflating tyre having picked up a nail the size of an anchor Considering the speed there was no other damage, very lucky

I was impressed the way this Michelin tyre held up (275/40/20 Latitude Diamaris). But finding a replacement was fun! Premium tyres cost a small fortune here. I suppose somethings are no different where ever you go. Land Rover quoted 430.

I had it replaced by the Michelin distributor for 270 and they also filled all the tyres with Nitrogen with free top up's for life of the tyre.
