    Puncture! Damn it

    Is it possible to fix it or will I need a new tyre..

    It's a big nail/metal object. I keep losing a pressure slowly.



    EDIT:
    And this...

    Should be able to fix as its near the centre. Its only when its near the edge or in the sidewall they wont fix it IIRC.

    Yeah that can be plugged. Should be £15 max!

    As Dave said, once it is near the sidewall on actually on the side, it cannot be plugged.

    Ok, cheers guys. £15 doesn't sound that bad.. New Pirelli P6000 would cost me £80 at least. And there was much life left in this one.

    I have bad luck with the punctures. Whenever I buy an Astra I get a puncture in OSR tyre in a short period of time. I had the same with Astra SXI

    I took the wheel off this evening.. I just found out that there are 2 nails in my tyre.

    Will that still cost £15? :P
