You cant fix it professionally the halfords diy is just to get you to a garage (if your talking about the foam ) also depending where the nail is will determine if a repair is viable.

You cannot self repair! (only tyre weld which is good as a get me home only). You need to go to a tyre dealer who will "plug" it (involves drilling the hole and glueing a kind of solid rubber tube into the hole. This can't be done however if its on the side of your tyre.

The cost is between £7 and £10

You can't (or shouldn't) do it yourself.

If the puncture is within the middle third of the tyre, its prob repairable providing you haven't driven on it at all. Outside of the middle third, you could get lucky but the garage will probably not want to repair it due to safety. You'll need a new tyre. Cost varies from car to car, my cheapo tyres are about £50 a pop if you're buying 2. Repairs vary between free and £15-£20 at some rip off merchants.

At the mo, i like ATS Euromaster.

Just paid £108 for two Perilli 6000s :-( bad times

Also had a nail puncture in a brand new Perilli 6000 tyre I almost cried, was in the side so they wouldn't repair.

Thanks very much for all this information. I am not sure how long i have drove with this tyre. But i will go to my local tyre shop tomorrow to get it fixed if possible otherwise a new tyre :( after a month again costing around £65 (205/50/16).

Same price I paid £54 each :?

I've had Goodyear Eagle F1's before didn't last long

edit: just seen it's £15 cheaper per tyre just to have them delivered, think my local garage do them £10 each fitted so would work out cheaper that way.

If its a nice straightforward nail puncture, you could try this

I would say NOT kwik fit, as a puncture there cost me 22 quid, with all the balancing etc...

As gari189 says you can buy a kit, I have done the same already, and carry it with me, seems quite easy to plug the tyre hole permanently.

Would you risk a DIY job when you see some of the mangled cars after an accident
How heavy is your car - travelling at 70 miles an hour with trucks, lorries, buses and the like all around you?
A tyre blow out and you're all over the place in several pieces not to mention several other casualties - COME ON - WAKE UP!!!!! Pay the money and get it done properly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
