  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..

  15. HI just to add the new e11 disk is still using old uk maps so I would hold out and see what the 2010 maps are like :) edit i`ve just been playing with the E11 map & the maps might be ok (upto date) it`s the search engine that is still crap!, for instance if you search for raleigh drive which is in laindon essex, you wont find it unless you search for it under basildon essex, which unless you know the area you would not do???. Mind you I still think it`s better than tom tom
  16. Nice one anchorman I was wondering how long the batts last now I know ,,,,thanks :D

  20. just as well we couldnt agree on a price last night! Where have you seen them? can you PM me please!!! and is that new shape xt4's you have seen? just keep checking the usual car sites on the web, ie. autotrader, msn cars, ect they change daily there is one on ebay 06 xt4 65000- £10500 dosen`t say what shape? its a dealer so you should get it cheaper.. :) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Toyota-Rav4-2006-Die...%3A1%7C294%3A50 http://search.autotrader.co.uk/es-uk/www/c...cleRegLetter=06
  21. thats good! I`ve seen xt4,s with a third of that mileage for that money, I would not pay any were near that price for it no matter how clean it looks :D
  22. As for the inner ring, it is big enough to pass over the alloy but it requires the wheel to come off at the same time. The support ring is glued/bonded to the inside of the tyre, so that's why you need a special part on the tyre machine to release the support ring whilst the tyre is coming off. Or you cut it off Hi Bryan just took another look at Darenb pictures, I dont think its bonded it looks like it just expands out against the tyre bead perhaps daren can confirm this. but either way it defo dont just fall off.. :D
  23. I am amazed that your dealer quoted £350 per new tyre for your T180 - I did a recent check before buying a new T180 wheel and tyre on eBay - the large Toyota dealer in the Manchester area quoted me about £200 fitted - if a tyre dealer is allowing to charge a customer around £150 extra for the possibility of damaging the ring he should not be in business as he cannot be compenent! Guy Hi all £350 is extortionate, I just had a rear tyre changed by toyota ( free fitting due to a defective valve ) and the tyre cost was £126.40 + vat, I was told if it was not for the valve there would have been up to 1Hrs labour on top. Service manager also informed me that the only way he knows to turn the tpms light off is to break the supply feed on the back off the clocks ( dont know how reliable this info is, As he also said that if I cut the tyre off the rim the metal support ring would just fall off "YER RIGHT" dont think so ) :P
  24. Tyre pressure system was un-affected , once the new tyres are fitted and inflated to the correct pressure the sensors work as normal , they are not connected to the support band so there are no warning lights on everything is working normally , the tyre guy did say that the tyre pressure warning system can be disabled by the Toyota garage if required but I have not checked with them to verify this . As I said in the previous post the big advantage now is that should I get a puncture or need new tyres I can go to any tyre supplier as no specialist equipment is needed to put a new tyre on it . Hi every one just to let you know that you can not use tyre weld liquids with the tpms valves as it will cause them to fail and they will cost £125 + vat plus fitting each. I would get some tyre plugs off ebay or a motor cycle repair kit to carry in the boot. I would also ask your tyre fitter to keep well away from the valves when using his bead breaker as according to my local service manager it`s the No1 reason for valve failers, Also when you have normal tyres fitted ask the fitter to turn the vaves flat to the wheel to prevent breakage if you get a further flat. thanks every one some usefull info on site.....ian
