I have my RCZ in my home garage with a flat tyre, a result of a rather deep pot hole yesterday on country road..

And I can not take car to tyre place until tomorrow.

My query is:

Should i use the repair kit to blow up tyre tonight then leave overnight.

Or should I wait and do it tomorrow before drive of some 20 kilometers

Thanks

All okay

I have two cars, so rather than use the repair kit, I jacked it up and removed wheel and will take to repairers tomorrow.

Thanks

You definitely chose the best option there. If you have a similar situation again, you are better using the gunk just before the drive, rather than the night before, but even better not to use the gunk at all.

There are reports that some tyre shops say tyres can't be repaired once the gunk has been used, but I do know that others have managed to get them repaired, so it seems to depend where you go. :eusa-think:
