Voucher is for "City Discount Tyres"

I was looking for some tyre discount deals and found this one. Last time when I had puncture, I paid about $25 to some store in my local area. So voucher is saving of $10 and there is no expiry date. As voucher says excludes light truck, 4wd and luxury vehicles.

      Source?
      I've had a handful fixed, as screws/nails/everything love car tires on/near construction sites.

      Used 3 different stores, priced ~5 more (quick drive around the area first). $25-35 depending if on-car, and if a tube is required, sidewall puncture. That's over a 5-10 year period.

        I am the source! First was about 6-8 years ago at a small independent auto repair shop, second was a couple of years ago at a larger tyre repair chain. Both in the Adelaide northern suburbs. Pulled out the screw, inject a rubber slug, pump it back up in the space of 5 mins. Your mileage (pun) may vary.

          Source = where is the deal. The shop, I mean. If you can give the details of a full service puncture repair for $10… You'll save everyone a ton of cash. There are plenty of threads on the matter, showing what a safe & correct fix costs.

          Tyre dealers that use external plugs are hacks.

          http://www.racq.com.au/cars-and-driving/cars/owning-and-main...
          "Punctures in tubeless tyres must only be repaired by fitting a vulcanized plug or patch from the inside of the tyre. In all cases the tyre must be removed from the rim to check for internal damage. Plugs that are fitted from the outside do not provide a permanent repair. Tyre repairs are only allowed in the tread area and are best performed by a reputable tyre dealer."

          @Utopian:
          Hacks? Yeah, because you've been in the industry for that long!
          I'd much rather someone that's experienced enough to know what he's looking at and exactly what can be done to fix it than half of these, as you put it, 'hacks' that have to read forums or training manuals!
          $15-$20 is fairly standard for a tubeless repair. You get a couple of the major chains and franchise owned stores that are dictated to that try charging $30+.

          Ps. Safe & correct? Like the clowns at Kmart Rosebud trying to tell my Brother that he needs a new tyre because he's stuffed the sidewall when the screw that entered was about 15mm long and entered about a 1/3 of the way across the tread area! I told him to go to Tyrepower where they; a. agreed that Kmart are a bunch of clowns; b. fixed the tyre in question; and c. didn't even charge him for it!

          Although frowned upon, there's nothing wrong with the the right kind of external tyre plugs being used so long as you've got someone who knows what they're doing!

  • sorry pretty much includes all shit boxes

  • you buy the actual plugs for cents on ebay.

    they are really lubing OP more than the tyre with this deal.

    • Plus the kit.
      They're illegal, require time/effort/skills that not everyone has.
      I don't see the problem with this deal.

      You're not comparing a complete & legal professional service.

      • Illegal? In what way? Proof please.

        The tyre shops in my area all use exactly the same kits you can buy at retail shops. If the puncture is near the side wall or is deemed bad enough that they require removing the tyre from the rim, they usually refuse to repair it on safety grounds and insist you replace the tyre.

        Some of the guys you pay to repair a tyre might have 20 years worth of experience with repairing tyres, and will tell you immediately if a repaired tyre is safe enough to continue using. But some will be teenagers working part-time minimum-wage at Kmart Tyre and Auto, who wouldn't know a slash from a scratch. So paying somebody doesn't guarantee a "professional" service, assuming you're using that word in reference to quality. Professional these days usually refers to somebody being paid to do their job.

          I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU… But alas it is against motor authority guidelines to fit an external plug in this manner!

        • @Snoop: Authority almost equals professional these days.

          It is never usually a requirement for the "authority" to have read, nor understand, their own guidelines.

  • Just get a puncture kit for a few bucks, its actually kind of fun. For $15 I can see the convenience factor though.

  • It takes a bit of muscle to fix a puncture by yourself but definitely do-able at very little cost. Here's a YouTube video showing how to do it yourself:

    The discount stores near my house sell tyre repair kits ranging from about $4.50-$6, which come with about ten plugs. A set of new rubber plugs sells for a dollar or two. I bought a beautiful repair kit with stainless steel handles and a carry box from ALDI for $15. $25 for a repair in an absolute rort. Even $15 is pushing it.

    After you do it two or three times you can do the repair in under five minutes. The trickiest bit is probably getting the tyre off the car - but if you're taking the tyre somewhere to get them to repair the puncture, you've probably already done that bit anyway! Unless it's a very slow leak and you drove it there.

    After the tyre's off the car, it's a case of removing the foreign object that caused the puncture, reaming out the hole a bit, squirting on some rubber cement, pushing a rubber plug into the hole, then re-inflating the tyre. Not too difficult.

  • Dunt seem like a deal. I normally get it done for $10 lolz

  • $7 Ajaj tyres

  • Crazy price really, you can buy new tyres for $49, granted they are Made In China, but the quality is ok all the same

    Refer Gumtree for adverts.

    • $49? Wonder if they've got them in 275/35R20s for my ute? (yes, it's sarcasm)

      So if you've got one year old toaster worth $100 and a button popped off of it would you go and buy a cheap new one for $49, or pay $15 to get it fixed?

  • if you buy tyres from Costco, they will repair punctures for free

    Do they repair the punctures by taking the tyre off the rim or… simply putting a plug in? if putting a plug in - it's $10~15 everywhere around sydney.
