Worth checking to see if it can be repaired
It’s only a tyre go and light em up and get yourself 2
Hang on a minute, Mr. Flute, how did you return to base following the puncture ? I’m wondering if this the first documented case of someone successfully using tyre foam, amusingly known as the Mobility Kit. If so how ?
My commiserations on the puncture.
It only lost pressure slowly so I did it need the puncture repair kit
200 quid for a new yan so it’s an expensive screw
Sorry to hear. I know your pain. Happened to me at my old office car park a lot. Must have had at least 4 nails through tyres at that place. Very frustrating.
£200 for the new tyre seems quite good valu? I thought they were more like £250 each. What are you fitting and where did you get the new tyre?
Can you not get it plugged???
I think it doesn't want a repaired tyre.
OP get it repaired and sell on ebay. I am sure you will get 50% of the cost of a new one
It’s a good shout. I may see if it’s repairable and use it as a spare if needed.
Got the price fitted to £235.
^ What made you day "totally u/s" in post 1?
Take no notice of the likes of Kwikfit if they say it cant be repaired.
Just go to a place that does Vulcanising repairs, should cost about £20
The 2” long screw is approx an inch in from the side wall. If it was in the centre it maybe repairable. But it’s isnt, typical
Like i said , it IS repairable get it vulcanised!!
New tyre fitted today. Advice from a good friend in the business was that this wasn’t repairable. Tyre now scrap but hey ho that’s just how it is.
