This morning i found out my tyre had a nail sticking out of it .. had to bring it to the workshop to had it done.
unfortunately. i recently purchased this tyres which is less than a month old. zzzzzzzzzz
problem now is. this nail is considered shoulder towards sidewall. which in most cases people normally say cannot repair la.. dangerous... but i need your input.. can it be saved? i dont really drive tat fast.. max also 120.. it costs me a bomb to install this new tyre..
Maybe still can be repaired, if the puncture go thru the steel belt on top. Ask for patch repair, about RM15-20, not the RM5 repair.

i dont understand.why so many tyre manufacture and many tyre model in market but in this situation (tayar kena nail) terus tayar become dangerous to use?
If kena nail at thread area is still ok, coz got the steel wire on top that stop the tyre from getting deformed. But of coz get the patch repair, not the RM5 repair. RM5 repair meant only as temporary solution before getting proper repair.
If puncture at the side, and if even one of the string (which made of textile) is torn, after some time it will have like pimple coz the side is always subjected to flexing. And from the pimple, the rubber might torn, or in some extreme cases might lead to blow up.
