    Default Double Bummer

    How much does this suck?
    We were playing in a mud patch in central Cape Town Sunday night, I started hearing the rear wheel deflate so we headed to the Gardens Engen and left it there.

    Came back to fix it the next day and discovered both were out! How much does this one suck?

    Apparently I might be in the market for new tyres as well... gah!

    Are you sure they're both punctures? Maybe one, or both, just got debeaded? Some mud or other gunk between the rim and the tyre could also have created a slow leak.

    Yeah, turns out the front one was only some mud between the rim/tyre.

    Rear one was a huge nail. Cost a total of R120 to fix, and included a wash (which it really needed!)

    Buy yourself a tyre repair kit and keep it in your car. Next time you hear a leak you can pull the nail (or whatever) and fix it immediately. Just add a good pair of pliers to the repair kit for the pulling out job.

    not a bad idea. I need to replace them in anycase though, the one has a huge gash in the sidewall, and I dunno how long it's going to last.

    Will get the kit this w/e.

    Good time to put nice 31s on or at least something a bit more substantial than the originals.
