  1. Renault ZOE
    Car is only a couple of months old but the rear passenger tyre has a slow puncture causing the pressure to slowly lower over time. Best options? I could replace the tyre for circa £100 or i could take out tyre insurance and wait the designated time and claim thru there? Only issue being it...
  2. General EV Discussion
    Hi, was just wondering if anyone has any experience of these Kumho tyres, has or is using them on their cars. The 2015 Kia Soul im getting will be needing a new pair of tyres in the not too distant future and looking at these they seem quite good (B rating got efficiency and C for wet 70db) and...
  3. Kia Soul EV
    Hi, I'm looking at a 2015 27kWh Soul, I've noticed that it had 3 x new tyres (Joyroad HP RX3 -budget tyre?) But they other the is still a Nexen on the offside front. My question is, are only specific types classed as 'Low rolling resistance' and how much affect would fitting these make in terms...
  4. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi all, This error came up on my dash.. reset the tyre pressure and the error went away only to return a couple of days later. It disappears after I reset but just wondering if this has happened to anyone else or anything I can do to correct it? I have checked all tyre pressures and they are...
  5. Volkswagen e-Golf
    4500 miles in and have a puncture in one of the rear tyre. This happened early December but apparently Bridgestone are not due to release any more tyres until after 6th Jan 2020 - KwikFit cannot source them, even direct - VW don’t have any in the dealer network apparently and their suppliers...

  7. BMW i3
    Hi Chaps, New I3 Owner having tyre issues, hoping someone with more knowledge than me about the I3/car tyres in general might be able to help. I got a puncture in my rear offside tyre, took it to closest tyre place (500 metres away) as it was leaking fast after being reinflated. They told me...
  8. Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Am I correct in thinking that the alloy wheel cleaners that you get are just for the wheel spokes? Can you use it to clean the brake disc too? Should you/How do you clean the brake discs? I find they are getting red/dusty quite often probably because of the regenerative braking/less use of...
  9. Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Just had a 20k service in the UK for my 6 month old leased GTE estate on stock tyres and rims. Very happy with it, but... I have a damaged sidewall on the rear and fronts are down to 3mm. And.... There are no Continental or Hankook VW spec (some kind of puncture seal runflats) tyres available...

  12. Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
    Or perhaps I should say, 'Tire Pressure Warning'. In the long learning curve of understanding the eccentricities of this otherwise excellent car, here's another. I've never had a Tyre Pressure warning system, so was surprised when the light came on the first time. It was late at night and I...
  13. Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    While visiting local petrol station (first time in forever!) to put air in my Leaf tyres, I just remembered after 8 months of driving my leaf today that the tyres have the TPMS so they can be remotely checked. Having just logged onto Car Wings via Nissan website, I can't see any option for...
