I drive a 1-year old Swift Vxi. Came with JK tubeless tyres.
So one of my tyres got punctured a few days before. I was driving it in very low air pressure.
First time got it checked on a highway. He analysed the tyre and told me there are three punctures. Did not felt to me as the right guy so I had my spare tyre checked and fitted instead( as it was late in night and I was near my home ).
Next day I got it checked from another shop and he showed me 8-9 tiny punctures throughout the tyre
The punctures are at sides as well as in the middle.
Could not find any nail or any sharp object.
Now, available options for me:
1. Get it fixed using Rubber repair strips
. But it will mean making 8-9 big holes in the tyre. Costs around 100 per puncture !!
I'm not sure how much the tyre will survive in long run after this postmortem. Also heard that this method is not recommended for side wall punctures. Is this true?
2. Put a tube inside the tubeless tyre
for 600 bucks and us it without getting the holes repaired(they are very tiny).
Cons: setup of 3 tubeless and 1 tubed tyre may cause harm to suspension as both types have different weights. In this case, this tyre can only be used as spare.
Guys, I need your advice. Option one or option 2?
Or is there any other option available?
Or should I get a new tyre?
