    why wouldnt you pay? With modern low profile tyres and exotic rims it can take 15-20 mins to find & repair a puncture without wrecking the rim. I can only imagine the place does a deal that f you buy a tyre from them they will repair any punctures for the life of the tyre?

    or, human error - they forgot to charge you?

    Some Contract Hire companies will use unfair wear & tear as reasons for charge or non charge

    Maybe the one of the fitters thinks you are cute?

    Had a tyre replaced a couple of months back and got free puncture repair for the life of the tyre.

    From Audi too which was nice.

    I go to a national tyre centre by me, had 3 repairs done now for free and all they say is leave a drink for the lads or make sure you use us when you need a new tyre etc etc, real good service too never more than 30 mins max!
