Tim, clearly these people are treating you unfairly, as a member who only has occasional breakdowns I will write to the AA and demand that they drive you to work and launch your RIB daily!!!

Nice fast response there Doug!

I'm with the Jimbo rapid response rescue service now. It's great; they come and rescue you at all hours in all sorts of od situations and all they demand in return is rum

Many cars these days don't even come with a spare - ferraris and even Mazda RX8s for example.

It can't be the law, hundreds of cars don't carry one as standard, mine included! I haven't even got a jack, just a mini 12v air compressor and a can of tyre gunk where the spare wheel lives.

I would recommend putting some Ultra Seal in trailer tyres. I have this in motorcycle tyres and horse trailer as well. I found it at motorcycle shows and is sold for a wide variety now. It prevents blow outs and keeps tyres inflated. I hav no affiliation to company just a great product that saves all the grief. www.ultraseal.biz. You can put it in each tyre yourself or have it fitted I have arranged for new trailer and boat to have it done.

Funny, I was just about to post that "Jimbo Rapid Response" drivers were all trained by Pete8.9 (That event promoted you quite a bit...)
