Instead of a spare tyre, vehicles are now supplied with an emergency puncture repair kit that requires you to spray glue into the punctured tyre. However this temporary repair method is only suitable for punctures that are less than 4mm wide and the adhesive also has a sell by date.
This subject has been picked up by the press due to a number of drivers being left stranded after having a puncture. The puncture repair kit has not been suitable and they have needed to use their recovery service to get them home instead.
At Caffyns ŠKODA, we are now able to supply you with a spare wheel, tyre and fitting kit (which includes a car jack, wrench and wheel holder) from just £170 including VAT*. We would of course fit this into your ŠKODA free of charge and carry out a free visual health check too.
