Tried Bob Jane and they tried several options, initially he said no prob but when he tried to get them he said no one would relinquish. If I was in Sydney or Geelong I could have driven in and they probably couldn't say no to replacing, but they won't send. Worse come to worse could send a courier to your house hehe

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Mate i'll sell them to you for what I paid, $1k for 2 wheels/tyres but no TPMS in them. That plus courier would be cheaper than buying just 2 new tyres at BJ's.

What wheels are they and how old are the tyres? Sounds like a possibility, I'll let you know once I've been to the tyre shop tomorrow

Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Parking Brake Gone

Got home tonight and applied the parking brake. Got no resistance and the pedal goes straight to the floor. Testing in Neutral and we roll. I guess the cable has failed which seems unusual. Oh well it's time for the 10k service anyway - I'll have to park American style until They can get me in.

Question on Melbourne servicing. I bought at Nunawading but since then Hawthorn has opened within walking distance from my office. Has anyone had experience with Hawthorn?

Just bought from hawthorn, seemed pretty good and are ramping up their jeep service centre. Give them a go and let me know how they fare.

I believe the major tyre shops will no longer plug a puncture with a push in plug, but they will repair a puncture with a patch on the inside of the tyre. A little more expensive but is the better fix.

The smaller tyre shops might still do the plug repair.

But, if the puncture is on or near the sidewall no-one will repair it.

Spider Monkeys/Pirelli Scorpion Verdes (sp). bought them from a forum member about 4mths ago, had been on his car for less than 1000k's from memory. Have been under cover at my place since I bought them. Rims have a few surface scratches on the inside where the tyre nobs scrapped off the old weights! But he took the TPMS out for his 22's, so these only have standard type valves in them. I'm in no need to sell but if you need them in a hurry their yours. I'll buy another set lol.

Gidday Ozscot,
You're probably right about the cable. We were picked up at Adelaide Airport at the end of a work trip by our usual limo company who runs a number of 300C's. When we arrived at our hotel, he went to put the park brake on and "BANG"- no park brake.
Turned out to be a cable or somesuch.
