Pretty much as stated, anyone know of a place that repairs run flat's in the Preston/Lancashire area.
Just doing the oil and coolant checks on the wife's S convertible and noticed the head of a scree, it's in the centre of the tread, TPS isn't flagging anything and may pressure gauge is showing it still has a full compliment of air in it. Based on that I can't see why it isn't repairable but I know it can be difficult to find somewhere willing to do them.
They were fitted new when she got the car 4 months ago ad it's still virtually on max tread hence the preferred route of repairing not replacing.
As an aside once they are due natural replacement I'm very tempted to put non RSC tyres on, I see many have done this, does it compromise handling
performance at all?
Ive heard you can repair if like yours its in the centre of the treaded part and is just a small hole and not cut, but some garages wont do it I know, some will you needed to look around.
Replacing them with non run flats when the time comes will give you a smoother ride, and obviously the walls flex slightly more but folk that have done it say theres not much noticeable difference in the handling department.
You will need a spare wheel though or a compressor/inflation repair kit if you go with the non run flats, extra thing to buy and carry.
