    i have a michelin pilot sport 225/45/17 tyre with lots of tread left and the most annoying thing is that it has a bulge on the tyre wall. can these be repaired? it seems a crying shame to throw it away

    Sorry but that is a bin Job never heard of that problem been fixed

    OR the only other thing i would say is use it as a spare and then you know that you will only run the tyre for a few miles until you got other one tyre sorted

    Sidewall bulge, needs binning. For the sake of £100 would you risk your life?.

    Not worth the risk, though annoying it's got to be changed.
