Finally got the "train cams" back after a weeks outage and I am looking at the Chicago cam, thinking where are all the commuter trains!!

Then I realised. Happy 4th!!

Hump day has started well ...

Came out my front door to find that some thieving *** has stolen a wheel off my car. As I sat on the bus into work I realised I can't even fit the spare as they've nicked the wheel nuts too!

Seems you need "lockable wheel nuts"

Thanks Guys. Almost sorted now. I came to the same I conclusion as Bernie. Spare fitted and all four wheels have a lockable nut. Have tracked down a second hand replacement alloy about 25 miles away, just need to sneak off work early to go and get it :-)

So much for modern technology. Back in the old days I could have still been rolling along with just 3 wheels on my wagon :-D

for a long time volkswagen didn't give you a full spare wheel, but just an 'emergency one' 'don't drive on it for more than 50 km, find the nearest garage'

very funny if you're in the middle of the Sahara...

on that note, winning.

.....VW aren't the only ones to supply those skinny little things - even worse are some high-end cars which just have a can of squirty gooey stuff, which is all very well until some poor schmuck has to change the wheel, or one suffers a nocturnal tea-leaf visitation....

Well my car is a pretty "low end" Nissan Note, and it has a can of "squirty gooey stuff" where one would normally find the spare wheel.

If I get a puncture it may just be a call to the RAC!

I'm really glad that old Fiestas come with a proper spare wheel. I wouldn't have got far with squirty goo as a fourth wheel :-D
