Car tyre repair

By Garema Place - 13 April 2014 3

Fellow Rioters,
Any suggestions on a cheap, reliable Southside (preferably Weston, Phillip) car tyre repairer? I have a flat 165/70R13 (off a Ford Festiva).
If I can get the tyre fixed at a reasonable price well and good; if not, I’ll buy a new tyre.
Thanks in advance.

If it is a puncture in the sidewall, no one will repair it. it isn’t safe.

If it is a leaky valve, almost any tyre place should, if its a puncture to the tread, the same applies.

Is the wheel on or off the car?

Just take it to any tyre place. It’s easier if the wheel is off, you can just drop it off then.

Repairs should cost you $20-$30 – easily cheaper than springing for a new tyre.

Probably late for you, but for others…
Ring all the tyre shops and tell them the last price you were quoted.
They are all set-up to beat competitiors prices… you can save hundreds on tyres/wheels/repairs
