I have had at least 6-7 punctures on my cars in past 4-5 years and all of them, I mean absolutely all of them were repaired with conventional kits. I did not face any problem whatsoever. They should be OK in my opinion. But if you have time and access to tools/ place that does mushroom patch, better
Thanks.

Do you have a portable compressor to inflate the tyre after patching the puncture? If yes, which one and how good is it?

There are lots of available ones on Amazon, flipkart etc. These compressors are handy and work on electric supply of your car.

Yes. I bought one from eBay year ago. It's called as Coido - with flash light and air inflater. Costed around 1100 something. Pretty reliable and useful.

It'd also help to have an extra valve or two with you. And check for leakage from that first before going for the tyre.

Often inexperienced workers mess it up while you fill air. They don't put the nozzle correctly. Or your valve itself may be short. Thereby, more chances of them damaging its inner stem. And obvious put a valve cap. It's very useful.

Tyres are quite strong and require a lot of harm before getting punctured. Some basic care like destoning it or at least inspecting it once a month is always nice.

Wink Re: DIY Guide: How to temporarily repair a Tubeless tyre puncture!

After trying unsuccessfully to convince my customers on the benefits of a Mushroom patch vis-a-vis a string plug , I finally put up this poster to educate them back in 2014. I had found it on a BMW forum. Also got it translated to hindi.

Default DIY Guide: How to temporarily repair a Tubeless tyre puncture!

Not sure if my query belongs here.but if its not mods please move it, now coming to my query the back left tyre on my cruze ( 225/50/17 yokohoma tyres) went through a issue of brake getting jammed on that particular wheel and unknowingly i drove it like that for a few metres and the tyre got worn out a little on the part which it got jammed..now the problem is wen i drive the car a little jumping feeling is coming which is irritating to the core,culprit being the worn out tyre.I took it to a tyre workshop and they told either i have to change the tyre, which i dont want to as i know its expensive and a lot of thread is remaining considering at least two i have to change,else i have to drive like this for a while and when the remaining thread comes even the scrapped area the jump will be be gone..i dont buy this theory somehow so i want the tyre gurus here to give me advise if its true or is there any alternative ways apart frm these? Thanks in advance.

There is no way this tire is going back to normal. The only solution - in case your spare tire is a full size and not a donut, get that to work and relieve the existing one from a full time duty by moving it to stepney. Other than this, buying a new tire is the only solution. I would never advise retreading.

Regards.

I would appreciate if anyone can suggest a reliable tubeless tyre puncture repair kit for cars.I can see many options on Amazon but unable to finalize the same. Any feed back regarding this i.e. http://www.amazon.in/Coido-Tubeless-...A2UUB15FGE4DQW.

Default Re: DIY Guide: How to temporarily repair a Tubeless tyre puncture!

Sorry if this isn't the right thread but couldn't find one that fits my query.

Read on the Bridgestone website that a patch repair isn't safe and the standard plug method (used by roadside tyres guys) is best.

What's the best thing to do for my tubeless tyre which is leaking and though I've been careless in driving my family around with air filled up twice, I'm going to have to get it fixed now.

Really confused about what's the best fix and the kind of place I should head to.

thanks.

My tubeless tyre had a slow leak from the hole which was repaired by using the strip. Since the hole was big the strip is not able to seal the leakage. The tyre shop guy told the solution for this is to patch this from inside and this involves localised heating and would cost Rs 600 and take about 2 hrs. What is this process and is it safe for driving speeds up to 100 km/h?

I was quoted Rs 200 or 250 for the patch. FYI.
