    Went for a spin in the warm weather only to find a 2 inch screw in the rear tyre. Only 1000 miles on the clock and totally u/s. What a waste of good rubber. Now need to buy a new rear tyre and the hassle of it all. Blinking fumin :(

    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?

    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.

    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 :(

    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.

    Happy now
