Much better being able to carry on driving if you're stuck in the middle of nowhere rather than wait hours for MB recovery.
If you get a puncture anywhere in Europe this is what you do if your driving a GLC fitted with a Tyrefit kit.... Call 0080017777777 and let them take care of the problem. This cover is there during warranty time and may be extended if you continue to have your GLC serviced with a MB Dealer. :wink2:
Ha ha hope you have a mobile signal when you call the MB butler.With run-flats, gloop and a Dynaplug solution, I've got to admire your level of preparedness for your trip around the Emerald Isle. I doubt our local Regiment are as well kitted out for their trips down Mosul high street I'm afraid I will be relying on the red call button below the rear view mirror to summon the Mercedes butler. Never having experienced owning a prestige marque before, I can only assume a gentleman sporting a handlebar moustache and lederhosen will eventually show up to offer me bratwurst and sauerkraut sandwiches and a nice glass of Riesling before getting on with sorting out the puncture.
On a serious note, I've carried the plug solution on my motorbikes for years and they work fine. The repair has always lasted until the tyres have reached their legal minimum. In fact, both the AA and RAC use the official plugging kit supplied by BMW.
Carrying a spare tire and having to call for assistance in order to get them to put that spare tire on is just pointless to me. In the scenario where you have a puncture and a spare tire that requires someone else to come and utilize it, you may as well either 1) screw the spare tire, call for assistance and have them fix it with their products, or 2) carry goop or dyna plug and fix it yourself. The spare tire is deemed unnecessary to be on/in the vehicle at all lol.
:laugh::grin2:..... Yes the daft offset wheel sizes does present an issue and I'm not sure how the car will drive if I used a single size space saver.Not 100% sure but doesn't a GLC Coupe have wider tyres on the rear wheel than the front? If so, you would need to carry 2 spare tyres to overcome the Law of Sod. My TVR has a spacesaver tyre. It is only about 5" wide but can be used to prop up any corner. It is good for speeds up to 60mph and could stay on the car indefinitely. It sounds like you are fast approaching a roofbox or towbar and trailer scenario if you intend carrying an amount of kit that would make Kwik-Fit proud.
