Sidewall tubless tyre deep and wide cut
« on: July 13, 2015, 09:38:34 AM »
Today while driving early morning i got a feeling that my rear tyre is deflated and when i got it checked at a puncture shop, it was a side wall puncture and it was a deep and wide puncure. I don't know how it happened but now i visited two punture repair shops and both are saying it can't be repaired and they told me its a deep and wide cut but even a small cut on side walls can't be repaired. Is this really a situation now?

What to do?

Yes, nothing can be done now...if you attempt to get it fixed it will not hold

It has happened to me also twice... I got two of my car's tyres got unusable due to these minor side wall puncures. Now, According to my experience, you only have two options:

1. Replace the defected tyre if the set is not much used. It would cost you few thousand bucks but will give you peace of mind.

2. 2nd option is to get a tube inside it. Get the tyre patched from where it has a cut and get a good quality tube. This can be a bit dangerous on high speeds. You can use it as a spare and use on low speeds.

Regards,
Saurabh
