Sometimes it seems the roads have it in for us and our tyres can’t cope. If you are like the many that do not have the pleasure of having run flat tyres you may have to experience the ‘fun’ of waiting on the hard shoulder for a breakdown recovery team. This week’s tips give advice on how to change car tyres, from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman.
