yes and yes!

ive had one done at my local tyre shop before, cost me 7.50

tyre was only a couple of months old so there was no chance i was replacing it, still running on it yet a year later with no probs.

depending where the puncture is will depend if it can be repaired though.

same as stef yes and yes easier and cheaper than a whole new tyre mine was done on my old car year and a half ago are you sure its a puncture as on alloys theres a seal between the alloy and tyre this can go and the car will loose air just worth a mention as most places repair the valve wouldnt be fair deal would it stef

inside the tyre wall theres a seal that degrades over time and slowly lets air out if you have constantly low tyres and a new valve doesnt sort it this is usualy the problem i was meaning fair deal tyres was it there that you go

Makes me wonder what exactly is wrong with these part worns, and why the previous owners changed them. All seems a bit odd? Unless if they were from a write off, in which case you wouldn't want to touch them.... I dont get why people are binning perfectly good tyres, maybe i'm missing something here? :unsure:

i think alot of the tyres come from germany and probably other countries because their legal limit is much more than our 1.6mm

yeah they are mostly foreign tyres ive always got part worns trust me they arent dodgy knock offs or have tread fly off or that its a genuine way to save cash believe it or not there are people with 2 much money as the guy told me who change there tyres every year also a lot of them come from the fact that certain manufacturers replace the tyres before they sell the car on the forecourt dont know why but the tyre i got was almost indistinguishable from the new
