Slashed a tyre at LQ yesterday, brand new, can I fix it somehow?
From the inside the cut looks about an inch long, from the tread side it’s about 1 cm, it’s in the centre of the tread section. In the past I have stuck a patch on the inside and outside when I got small cut in the sidewall, originally done as a get me home but it’s still in use a cpl yrs later. I may just try a big patch, or maybe even a section of inner tube, inside dunno if it’ll hold tho (obviously I can’t patch the tread side)
dental floss will work, its usualy very tough stuff. Just sew it up eith lots of small stiches about 2-3mm in from the cut so they dont rip out. then glue a patch of thin cloth over the inside with lots of rubber solution.
