If you post the model and size and then we can find the best price for what you need.

Post your size.

The recommends are to buy in pairs, and this isn't just tyre sale pressure, it really is important.

£114 for the original tyres is a good price. About £109 is the cheapest I can find non fitted.

Cheapest comparable one I can find are here. Plus fitting at probably £10 you might as well go to Halfords.

I have used Oponeo a couple of times, they are based in Germany but customer service is excellent with perfect English spoken.

Yes ive had runflat tyres repaired but obviously depends where the puncture is.
Some places refuse to fix them so you might need to shop around.

Yes, depending on the location of the puncture. Its also not a patch or plug, you need it to be re-vulcanised. The repair garage will need to send the tyre away to do this.

A friend has had this done, cost £20 if I remember correctly, and the garage lent a tyre during the week repair time.

in theory yes - but the recomemdation from all tyre manufacturers is no!

Have you ever seen a RFT that has been removed - it is very easy to damage the tyre getting it off the rim and the concept of RFT is extremely stiff sidewalls

Also always fit the same brand / variant of tyre on the same axle - and if the one being replaced is well worn consider replacing both on the same axle - this will help with wear and also tyre pressure monitoring

TBH - if thte price is £114 fitted that is a good price - my BMW tyres are normally minimum £150 per corner

Could you suggest a garage that could do the repairs for me (ie.Halfords, Kwikfit etc)

think very carefully about a repair .... any damage to teh sidewall during removal will significantly compromise the tyre .... and if the fitting station damage the tyre will the tell you ? ..

Do NOT repair a runflat tyre. As said before all the tyre companies tell you not to for safety they are not designed to be repaired

Tyre is your main contact with the road is it really worth a blow out at 90mph to save a few quid. Reputable garages wont repair a runflat for you anyway

Bridgestone and Michelin both state there RFT's can be repaired.

eTyres and ATS Euromaster do run flat repairs I believe.

BUT ...... this is subject to many conditions ..... and also if the tyre can be got off the rim easily without damage ..... not always easy

I had a Bridgestone replaced on my BMW last week and the tyre fitter totally wrecked the tyre getting it to come of the rim
