    Just left Skipton on Saturday aft along the A629 in the outside lane doing 60mph when it went bang and blew out plenty of blue smoke. Had to change it in the rain but typically when I'd got back in the car the sun came out. Ah well.

    For the many who miss my sense of humour this is a joke.

    I was just thinking about a bit of silicone, should be fine as long as I keep the air pressure low!

    The rim is fine. Although I'm going to clean it up and Double check.

    Then the sun came out.... Don't ya just hate them days ;)

    Is that not a bit big for a safe repair ?? I could well be wrong but I'm always a bit scetchy about running tyres after a they had anything more than a simple puncture repair.

    "I think I need a new tyre" - I think so too. To be honest with you, that tyre should go straight in the bin. Filling it up with tubes or silicon could lead to a severe accident.

    I was joking! Its in the bin already. There ain't a chance id fix it! Question is though, do I get two more bridgestones or shop about and get some 2nd hand 18" and then drop it?

    trouble with second hand tyres is that the previous owner might have done similar to what you did, but it aint visible.....yet.No doubt about it get two new ones.
