    You should be able to get that repaired. The whole of the nail hasn't gone thru so it doesn't look that bad

    Hmmm. If it's actually punctured the whole depth of the tire then I'm afraid it's game over (tyre places have limits for proximity to sidewalls within which they won't plug holes). Doesn't look like it has though - pour some washing up liquid over it and wiggle the nail. If you see no bubbles it might be worth whipping it out and seeing.

    Ya, if it has punctured then no repair place will touch it. It is far too close to the sidewalls.

    Also, TBH, even if you could get it repaired, would you really want to? It's very dangerous. New tyre or your life (as well as others on the road)?

    Yes you are right simon i must to find place where they will fit them for me as not many places want to do that..if you buy tyres from them thats not a problem with fitting..but for now i will spend this money on remap and good air filter if everything is all right with my toy as i m going later to my local garage for a general check..
