- Tubeless tyre repair
I've got a small tear (about 5mm) on the sidewall of my UST tyre which I am hoping to repair with my newly delivered Panaracer repair kit. On reading the instructions it would appear this kit is more suited to puncture holes than tears but I may be wrong.
So, anyone repaired a sidewall with this kit, or is there a better alternative?
Many thanks.Posted 10 years agodoug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
How close to the bead is it? In my experience if it's close to the bead at the edge of the tyre then you're not going to be able to repair it. I've tried to repair small holes here and found that it seems fine until you ride it a bit and then it just opens again.
I've repaired small rips about the same size as yours on the main tread with the repair kit and it's been fine though. Never repaired a rip in the middle of the sidewall though so not sure about that. It could well be fine though.Posted 10 years ago
