Tyre Repair..No No
My friend discovered that there was a 1cm long/1cm wide gash on his Wagon R tyre .The tube was damaged badly b'coz the sharp object tore through the tyre into the tube.
The friendly neighbourhood tyrewalla offered him a 155/80 r13 tube which he obviously refused.A new tube of the correct specification in place, ,the tyre walla put in flap(piece of tube) to cover the gash and then the wheel was put back..the result..severe wobbling at speeds >60kmph.
Short cuts are a strict no no having experienced this.

Rethreading the tyre is not adviceable for cars, but on the other hand lot of people do it for Jeeps....Jeeps can take that, i have even heard that re threaded tyres can cause damage to the suspension of cars if used......
