    Default Need some advice got a puncture

    Need some advice got a puncher the other day.
    The big tyre place's would only replace the tyre but did not have the same tyre so started to look around then a small local garage repaired it from the outside. Is this still aloud as people have said I should still replace the tyre.
    I will be doing some long trips over the summer holidays so replace or not?

    as long as it's not in sidewall I believe it's okay. Mate of mine has three in his tyre and has not had any problems but peace of mind is everything

    Replace it for peace of mind, but garage's especially tyre/exhaust places are sods for trying to sell you new tyre's you don't need..... AND while the wheels off they love to tell you your shocks are leaking and the brakes need an overhaul. All be warned!
