Humour doesn’t convey as well in written form as it does in person where
farcicalfacial expressions and other cues aid the receiver of your humour.... Best to help the reader in some way if your being continually misunderstood ...
And though I saw you indicate you're from Bevearly Hills and drive a EA Falcon, which in this connected world may mean you use to drive Fords, and now live in the USA, you failed to see the emoji In my post or the comment that it was tongue in cheek... (we need a face palm emoji)
I totally agree, which is why the rule on shoulder repair and run flat repair is an industry standard, whether its published or not im not sure..If a tyre fails because a place hasn't performed a satisfactory repair as outlined, damage caused to that car and/or driver makes the place that repaired the offending tyre liable for those damages....
By putting up the correct way to have a tyre repaired helps others avoid the shonky places that choose the quick easy method......And generally those sorts of places pack up and move on frequently, which then leaves the owners in the lurch
I believe the choice whether to repair vs replace should remain at the discretion of the Tyre fitter, especially if they are to be held liable. Im not sure if VACC has anything on the subject?
