So what does this guideline from the various places say is acceptable as a repair method? Do these guidelines stipulate how to determine if a tyre is deemed repairable or not? Do these guidelines stipulate how to go about a tyre repair outside the state of NSW even if the car in question registered in NSW and happens to get a puncture out of that state?Is this plug-illegality a South Australian thing?
I can’t find any rules for NSW that say it’s illegal OR legal, but the NSW RMS guideline on replacement wheels & tyres from 2019 says damaged tyres must be “replaced or repaired” (and I can’t think of other ways you can repair a tyre?) and there’s a Bob Jane T-Marts website page from 2019 that also talks about repairing tyres if it’s deemed possible (and a large chain like that would be very wary of saying/recommending something illegal).
You keep telling yourself that you donutMy comment was relevant.
TPMS tells OP his pessures low, OP attempts to correct pressure, pressure drops again.. OP's first instinct is to create a profile to ask people online who cant even see the tyre what the problem is rather than seeing one of a million tyre shops?
If I'm the village idiot for pointing that out then my comment is not only relevant its validated.
Ill help you all out in regard to tyre repair. The centre 75% of the total tread can be repaired if the puncture will take the plug (mushroom plug from inside, not rope). In most cases the puncture is enlarged to accomodate the plug anyway so bolt, screw, nail its irrelevant as long as it can be opened up with and cleaned. The remaining section of the shoulder can not be repaired, (not to say people dont) Run flat tyres can not be repaired (again not to say people don't) Its always going to come down to the individual as to whether they feel it acceptable and safe to carry out a repair
So with the PDF @Skylarking placed up in relation to tyre repairs in Vic , it appears to back up the way I have described to do a repair.Maybe this is for SA only, not false in Vic....
Humour doesn’t convey as well in written form as it does in person whereYou actually think I drive a Falcon? That's amusing. Clearly I'm taking the piss
WTF are you on about?So with the PDF @Skylarking placed up in relation to tyre repairs in Vic , it appears to back up the way I have described to do a repair.
It also appears from what you have written, the way the PDF and I have described is false by your accounts, so how would be the appropriate way to repair a tyre in VIC?
You said it was totally illegal to do at all, and then you said how it should legally be done.I have written the way the acceptable Australian standard way is to repair tyres...
