The Problems Never stop..

Picked up a Puncture Yesterday, unknowingly. Turns out its a Pop Rivet !!!

£50 Replacement tyre, and there are ONLY 2 OF THE SAME tyre left on the country (Discontinued)

So I can either
a). Wait till Wednesday to have the same tyre put on
b). Wait till Monday to have a newer Version of the Falkens put on


And now Im off to work, in a Fecking Mood. Nice...

Dont come into the Coop Today, Just a warning...

Can it not be repaired?

Had a few punctures in the past with the 206 an it was repaired with no problems, just like brand new lol.
Go into a tyre repair garage and see what they say unless its that bad you need a new tyre.

Have them all the time matey. Drive a Sprinter van and always getting nails, steel etc in the treads off site.
The probs with puncture repairs is now governed bu health and safety!!!! (fookers get everywhere!!)
Depending on the puncture location in the tread and the size of the hole left. I used to work in Kwik Fit years ago and we were told to just sell the customer a new tyre and blag the damage on the old. Even had one lad go onto Woodchurch road on a quiet spell and drop small nails into the road!!! BAD DAYS!!
There are some products out there, that are sprayed into the tyre thru the valve, that when activated by a puncture will seal the hole up tp 10mm diamiter! Forget the name tho, but shouldnt be hard to trace. Its not a foam, its liquid, acts like Radweld does in your cooling system.

Got a steelie on mine, it's off a Carlton, so is too wide so I've had to pull the arch out a bit. Car looks a total sodding mess.

I used to work in a steel fabricators, the amount of steel spiral shards got everywhere, and I went through a load of tyres in a year.
