Rear right at 5k miles nail in middle, major repair (vulcanised like a lorry) still going strong at 9800 although tyres need changing I've had no problems at upto 160 smiles per hour. Common sense is a delayed reaction usually brought on with a guilty feeling.

Has anyone considered tyre insurance. Not looked into properly it but seems that apart from some limits like £300 per tyre etc, it might be worth considering.

Just found out that I also have a nail in my rear tyre. Problem is that no-one seems to have the Dynaplug kit available. I have seen non Dynaplug brands. Are they just as good?

Screw is pretty much in the middle of the tyre, but the guy at KwikFit said they could not repair the runflats - is that right?

Now, I was always thinking that I wanted to change the wheels on the GTR and go down in size and some toyo r888s, but was not expecting it so quickly.

Time to go do some research on wheel and tyre options - any thoughts, places to buy, etc would be great.
I had my Bridgestone runflat repaired in Denmark Euromaster (kwikfit-like chain) a month ago. It has been absolutely fine since and the tyre technician that carried out the repair says it is as good as new and will last way longer than the life of the tyre. Find someone that will repair it and save yourself £400 or so....

Fool and his money..............

I suppose you'd never consider changing the oil on your car either.....Leave it to the "professionals". The 16 year old professionals that probably do it at your local HPC

Nearly a year on with my Dynaplug fix, no loss of pressure at all. I think my Dynaplug kit came from an Austrian or Swiss site (only ones with stock)

It's really easy to do, my learning experience was to make sure the tyre was inflated prior to inserting the plug.

Just ordered a kit of off Amazon.com. £15 inc shipping. Can't understand why loads of places in the UK sell the plugs but not the kits. Anyway, not desperate a the moment so happy to wait.
Will let you know how I get on.
