Customer Question

There's a screw lodged in my tire causing a slow leak. I'm trying to decide whether to repair the tire or buy a new one. Is the repair a permanent fix or will it break down? What do you recommend?

Hi. Get a plug kit, it really is easy to do (you can get plenty of how to guide on youtube). The only complicated thing is to put back the tire on the rim. At worst you can get a garage man to do it for you in 2 min, it will last the life time of the tire. Tire are already expensive enough plus the trouble to have to manage tire of different age if you change just one.
