  1. Hi all I have used both of these & replaced lots of tyres that have been repaired with both the plugs and the string, and in my opinion the string type is the only one I would used because it is designed too not only plug irregular shaped holes but the glue on the cords vulcanize the string too the tyre making a very reliable and permanant repair.
  2. Hi every one & happy newyear Before this topic goes sidewoods. let me just say toyota admitted it was wronge of them too disable certain functions on the satnav/radio hense if you bye the later "toyota E11 upgrade dvd`s" not only does this give you the new maps you also get a firmware update installed which enables all the previously dissabled functions. If you bye one off ebay ect make sure you bye the western europe disc. regards...ian
  3. those tyres wont fit your t180 wheels unless you remove the support ring sytem, I was told by a very good tyre shop owner that the inside of the tyre bead is not flat enough to seat the support ring, Having said that if you fit the reinforced side wall runflats you should have no problem dumping the support rings.......let us know how you get on if you go with the kumho.
  4. Hi all I just double checked and it could be either 00-06 2 ltr 1AZ-FE = chain 00-06 1.8 ltr 1ZZ-FE = chain 94-00 2 ltr 3S-FE = belt so they all could be right.
  5. HI all A few months ago the tpms light started flashing on & off on my t180 indicating a fault & not a flat I took it to mr T how pluged in his box of tricks and promply replied your off side rear valve is knacked which means Ormi gets my vote :D :D :D
  6. AVIVA is what used to be norwitch union direct, Who used too be quite a good brocker but then got a realy bad reputation for excessively high renewal prices " mine in 2001 went from £270 too £480 and the asian customer service people had the attitude if you dont like it go someware else " which I did and I wont go back to them..
