    Run flat tyres

    Going to change the 2 front tyres on the new car as they are very worn. Can I replace them with non run flat tyres or would I have to change all 4 to do this?

    Assuming you don't have a spacesaver spare don't forget to carry a compressor and washable tyre weld should one of your standard tyres get a puncture!

    This is what I carry in the boot of my car mate. Gotta admit that 12V compressor is the quickest to inflate that I have come across

    Cheers for that mate! Do you run standard tyres all round or just on one axle?

    One axle at the moment but will change to non-RFTs as soon as the other axle tyres have worn
