No way that will be repaired. I've had them further into the band than that and they refused to do them. Shitter:bawling:

I wouldn't risk it too close to the edge, but it's up to you, what tyres are they I think I've got a used front Dunlop

MODs... Please don't let Steve read this...

I've recently made the switch to MPSS, what a difference, confidence inspiring in the the rain, great handling, smooths out the suspension feel, oodles of grip and I actually like the 'squweermeee' feel to them when approaching their limit... driver feedback.

Admittedly, it'll be a whole lot more expensive replacing 4 than it will be just the 1 though.

Perhaps ping the pic over to another tyre fitter or two? Surely the repairs closeness to the sidewall has less relevance due to them being run flats?

Why not contact Sly @ Kaiser and ask if he's got a single used Bridgestone? Maybe someone else has done the Dunlop switch after a similar predicament and he's got 3 tyres undamaged etc...

spoke to sly earlier..sooo tempted to have him fit the MPSS's but as all the other tyres are like new its a pain..
he said he doesn't have a bridgestone otherwise he'd be happy to sort me out..
ive ordered the new tyre and will be delivered in the morning..just gotta find someone with the correct machine able to fit without damaging the rim.
