You can picture the scene, you get back from holiday to find your tyre is flat! A cursory drive by quick fit (cheers to Patrick from Preston) and the diagnosis was a nail in the side wall. I was gutted as the tyre had only done 600 or so miles.
I got it back home and had a look myself (as it was on the side of the tyre next to the engine) once I'd got it off. The result is here:
the screw is in line with the row of rubber stalks you get on brand new tyres... is this a write off or is it repairable?
I have heard of this Ultraseal Stuff - (it's NOT Holts tryeweld) that you can put in to fix punctures on the go and prevent ever getting flats...
one site is this one... http://www.ultraseal-dy.co.uk/
I was wondering if anyone has heard of it or used it before? Would it work in this case?
If you could give me some opinions that would be good, as I don't want to replace a 600 mile-old tyre unless it is likely to be dangerous if repaired.
