after paying £1000 for a new DPF i notice the lads 508 had a puncture so we went round to Mr Tyre

just a puncture, tyre ok, fixed £17.95


hang on, mine only cost £16.95


"Yours was a 16" rim, his is a 17" rim......."


still just a hole in a rubber ring bud

You need something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/192613161555?chn=ps far quicker and cheaper than a garage. None of that "To near the edge" tosh.

It is really easy to do.

So far I have repaired three of my own punctures, one on the wife's car and two other Taxi Drivers (who now have their own kits).

I've got a similar one. Done two punctures of my own and one other drivers.

Really good when you've got a nearly new tyre and the fitters say they can't fix it. Funny thing is once you've got a kit you seem to get less punctures !

ive watched one done but they used a T plug not just the round section but have to be put in from inside so air pressure forced a seal
