Oh dear.. your tyre is screwed! But its a bit in the middle so might be repairable
pretty much dead centre so hopefully a repair will be doable..
Always annoying when that happens.
isn't it just, , , second time in two months
I can go for years without a puncture, then two or three in a short space of time.
I think they should be able to fix that one for you Chris. Don't let it get you down.
That should be repairable, my uncle fixed a nail in his tyre the other day, I watched when the guy fixed it and got me thinking how safe is the repairs they make? They just plug the hole with a bit of rubbery seal, worries me that going over a pothole or something at speed might cause pressure and pop the plug out at speed
The plug is glued in and has a bigger area on the inside so it can't pop out. We get loads in the truck tyres at work especially on the work we do and there fine and were running at 120psi and 44 ton lol.
I work for a builders mechants and we used to run normal tyres on our sideloader, but in the end we changed to solid tyres due to all of the staples we used to get in the tyres that come out of the backs of timber, the ones the yard guys never bothered to pick up. But I feel for ya as tyres are certainly not cheap!
