Topic - Holes in my tyres...what to do?

MattJ753 - on 02 Dec 2012
Hi,

Just wondering if what has happened to me is a common thing, and what other people do about it?.....

Had a few puncures recently so I change the tube, pull out the foreign object and carry on... but I'm noticing that the entrance wound in the tyre can be quite big, leaving a gaping hole maybe 2-3 mm, which leaves what I assume to be a massive weakness in the tyre.

I had a puncture today and there was no sign of glass/flint/etc, so I am wondering if the inner tube was damaged through one of these holes.

So is this something that you just put up with, or is there an easy fix? I don't like the thought of replacing tyres as well as tubes after a blow-out!

Cheers,

Matt.
