was driving tired ;( stupid i know,
kind of didnt see a curb!

anyway my alloy is scratched :(..im hoping i can get it refurbished..but my question is about the tyre...it has a gash to the side of it with a chunk of rubber that i could pull off..

Apart from that the tyre is still fine...car drives okay..drove it for almost an hour to get home and still seems fine..

does anyone know if i need to replace the whole tyre or if it can be repaired? can anyone recommend a place to do this near south london?

would appreciate it a quick reply as i want to get it repaired this morning before my parents notice...

thanks

metsub

edit: can this be done at a mini dealership?
