    Default Car Tyre Puncture repair..DIY..??? (Tubeless Tyre)

    Just gone to "National Tyres" to repair tyre puncture (tubeless ) of Mazda6. According to them I have to replace tyre though puncture seems to be in the middle of well threaded Good Year 205/55 R16 Tyre..!! Need £100+ to replace..!! My puncture seems to be very small as it takes 2 weeks to get tyre pressure to go down to 26 from 32...

    Is there any economical work around to sort out punctured tyre ..?? Any DIY stuff.

    Thanks

    Tyres with tubes?

    How quaint. Is it a Model T?
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    There is no tube in a car tyre. There are guidelines on fixing punctures, usually if too close to the edge or in the sidewall it shouldn't be fixed. Get a second opinion.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Pump it up and pop into another Tyre Place....

    Offer any of the greae monkeys a decent drink and they will plug it for you....

    Take it somewhere else, they just drill a hole and glue a rubber plug in from the inside.

    I once had a complete flat, filled with tyre weld to get me home, was going to take it to the garage the next morning but was still fully inflated.

    Sold it 6 month later! - Still with the same tyre!

    Nice... I hope none of my family are unlucky enough to have a catastrophic tyre failure because someone sold them a ticking time bomb, that stuff goes brittle over time.
