Tyre Puncure - i10 - Tubeless
The other day ,my i10 of 3500Kms suffered its first tyre punchure ; the front left tyre exposed itself .
The beauty of the tubeless funda came to my help immediately, i realised that the tyre was punchured and has lost some air ,soon i filled in some air at the gas station as there was no tyre service center closeby ,i did not take the nail out from the tyre( basics of tubeless tyre) , i drove the car for another 100Kms without any issues and stopped the car at the service center , after just 30 min of being stationery the air was out fromthe tyre and the tyre flattened.
The reserve tyre was replaced and the punchured tyre was worked on ; after an hour and Rs 160 spent , i had the air filled tyre back with me. This tyre had a small synthetic or hard cloth like piece sticking out of the tyre at the place of the punchure . When enquired with the service guy he told me that that will be flattened out on use. Is this normal with tubeless tyre repairs ?
Pl advice .

As SHUVD mentioned this is the plug which is used to plig the puncture and the excess part will wear out during the course of use.

Tubeless Tyre Repair Procedure
The plug is generally trimmed off. Please go through this link for more information. You can do this yourself and save quite a bit of money, since the tyre shops charge something like Rs. 80 for a repair.
