Re: Got a nail in my tire heh :-| (escape75)

Any tire shop should be able to patch it right up if its in the center of the tire, if its on the corner it needs to be replaced, and im sure they wont damnage the wheel, most places if you ask nicely will do it for free, got mine done free of charge...
Good luck, gota love those full size spares huh http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Try discount tire co. or any tire shop in your area.

Re: Got a nail in my tire heh :-| (T1VW)

Looks like it's in the middle and not the corner so that's good

I'm gonna have it looked at tomorrow, but right now it's still holding
after I filled it up with some air so it must be not that bad, hehe.
Dealers don't have a way of fixing tires or at least taking them off
the alloy wheel then? (What about the weights, VW ones seem custom)

You mean the glue-on weights versus the clamp-on weights? Most decent shops have the glue-ons available, but it's always good to remind them that's what you want.

I agree, make sure that they take the tire off the rim and properly patch it from the inside......I've seen other shops that plug it without having to take the tire off the rim.

Many reputable tire places patch and plug the tire. Also, if they remove the tire and replace it exactly as it was on the rim they will not have to rebalance the wheel.
