Totally agree with your article on run-flat or space-saver spares. We have a Tiguan and live down about four kilometres of graded gravel road. We put a stone through the tread and thankfully were at home. So I changed to the space saver - but, no towing and limited to 80kmh! So I had to drive down to Nowra at 80km/h in a 100km/h zone, with the trucks wondering what the hell I was doing. Should be a Design Rule in Australia! Good article - well done!

“Thanks Allan for another no-bullshit review. Love your style of reporting and please don't stop!”

I love your site !!! It has reviews on utes and 4WDs that other sites don't. Trying to find another site with honest tests off road is almost impossible. Thank you and keep up the good work - Gary B, Andrews Farm, SA.
