Default 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......

Was this cut on the treaded portion of the tyre or on the sidewall?

Checked alignment and balancing???

Might have changed if they removed the wheels and put it back...

you mean treading & re-treading, dont you ?? this topic is not about re-treading anyway.

@vigsom. it is absolutely unsafe to drive like this. ask your friend to change his tyre & tube immediately.

This tyre is not serviceable. Discard it off before you have a disaster.
