- Rip in side wall of a road tyre. What's the best bodge.?
Got to the bottom of my road today and found a rip in the side wall of my conti GP4000s and a lot of air leaking out. I have patched it up with a patch and some emery cloth (strong none flexi material to stop the bulge) but is there a more permanent fix or should I just bit the bullet and get a new one.?Posted 6 years agopebblebeachMember
I used a puncture repair patch on the inside of the tyre and superglue on the outside to repair a pro 3 race. I’m fairly okay with it on the rear but wouldn’t use it on the front. It’s in the spares box as an emergency tyre that I would use for a couple of days maybe if I had to wait for a new tyre.Posted 6 years ago
