Post by billvega » Fri Jan 19, 2018 3:12 pm

Should this be repairable?

Yes. I’ve had a few in that area over the years due to where I work. Avg price £15. DO NOT TAKE OUT SCREW as I’m sure you are well aware.

Thought so, and yes re screw!

Ive had 2 in that same tyre. And that tyre is nearest the pavement by the angle I park on my front. I'm getting suspicious some arse is jealous of the Jag!

Good as new when fixed properly. As already said fixable and leave the screw in until the repair.

Just had a puncture after hitting a pothole, "what a faff" the repair sealant system was hopeless, all the goo just ran out of the split. Then had to get jag assist which is the AA who had to take me and the wheel to a dealer 30 miles away (only place that had the right size tyre) but not make I would have chosen. By the time got back and all sorted most of the afternoon was gone! Next time I get a car its got to have a spare of some sort!!

This is fixable by having a proper puncture repair. I had the same thing a year ago and had it repaired by a reputable outlet. and ran the tyre without issue. The company I used said the repair would outlast the life of the tyre.

Wish I hadn’t read this thread, I have a screw in one of my front tyres now.

Can’t get a jack under to remove the wheel and the head of the screw is proud of the tread so i’m stuck.

All the mobile fitters want to do is come and fit new tyres so Jag Assist will be here by lunchtime to hopefully sort it out.

Amazing; me too!
Pressure on F/O/S tyre has been slowly dropping over the last 2 weeks, so got the soapy water on it and found a nail lurking amidst the bubbles.
Garage across the road fixed in 25 minutes, inflated to 37psi and charged me £12. Excellent.

Re the psi. From cold they should be 37. But, the cold temperatures vary greatly in uk this time of year and in summer. So say first thing in morning, depending on time of year can be roughly between 0c and 15c. This effects the psi, so, at what temperature should they read 37? As its warmer now, say 9c my tyres are 38 cold. But when i did them at say 3c, they were all 37. Or does 1 or 2 psi either way not matter, drives me nuts
