ATS or KwikFit should be able to do that for you.

You're going to drive 100s of miles at high speed through france with a puncher repair?!

Good luck

Not so - many tyre manufacturers have relaxed their initial "never repair RFT" stance:

car-tyres.org.uk/articles/run_flat_tyre_repairs.asp or Google "Where to Repair Run Flat Tyres on BMW?" Damn forum anti-spam won't let me post URLs!

It seems that the main problem with repairs to RFT was that it's not possible to see whether there has been damage to the sidewall while the tyre was flat (other than by believing the driver when they say they've only done 2 miles @ 30 mph since TPMS alerted them that the tyre was flat).

Anyone know whether repairs require removing the tyre from the rim, or can they be done from the outside? I'm pretty sure when I had my old RX8's tyre repaired it involved removing it from the rim. Nissan/tyre-manufacturers have already issued guidance against removing the tyre from the rim several times (so, for example, preventing a low mileage GT-R from using winter & summer tyres on the same rim), so this might be a factor if repairs involve removal.

you can it depends on how many miles you have driven with the punctured tyre and what pressure it was.

So long as it has not be driven flat and the puncture is within the centre 3/4 of tread it can be repaired, I checked with Dunlop technical and they confirmed they can be repaired under those circumstances.

Using the same logic I could make the statement "You cannot drive faster than the speed limit."

Why post if you're just going to say something stupid having not read the rest of the thread?

Did you get your tyre insurance through Nissan?

ATS repaired mine for about £15 from memory. Took them about 20 mins.

They did ask if the tyre had gone flat at any point, I assume if it had the side walls could have been damaged if driven on for too long. Luckily the tyre had held pressure so no issues.
