It's not just Renault that use reinforced tyres now.I think it is due to the demand for big wheels and low profile tyres and to offset the possible damage done to wheels by current state of the roads in this country.If you hit a pothole the tyre protects the rim from possible damage,although in Laguna 2's with silverstone alloys this may not have happened.....................

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
