    Default Knackered tyre

    Discovered a nail pertruding from the sidewall on a rear tyre which has gone through it. As its the side wall I don't think its repairable and unfortunatly both rear tyres still have a fair amount (50%) of meat left.

    If the tyre can't be repaired and I can source another NCT to match the remaining good one will it be an issue if one side has more tread than the other?

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    See if you can get a used one to match. Should be about £20 for the NCT or less! Just brought 4 to go back on my old car for £60.

    Pretty sure that if its gone through the side wall they wont repair it. I seem to remember this happening to me some years ago. It sucks!

    No tyre place will repair a punctured sidewall.... not safe to do so as it weakens the strength of the tyre....

    Thanks all,

    managed to get a single NCT 5 to match - had to pay a little extra but still cheaper than 2 new tyres.

    Thats good at least, still sucks though. If you drive in a wiggly line does it reduce the chances of hitting nails or increase them....hmmmmm!?

    years ago you could have them repaired as long as it was done by a hot volk
