    Default Tyre repair kit in 206 gti180

    Hi,

    Just got around to reading the 206 car manual the other day. I read that once you've used the tyre repair kit in the gti180 (also available for 206cc), you have to get the tyre replaced asap? Is this true? I hope not since it normally cost around $10-$20 to repair a puncture compared to buy a new P7000 tyre.

    Also anyboady know the cost of the P7000 tyres for gti180?

    It's a funny thing, but I find that tyre dealers are great at giving you the latest prices on tyres..........

    much cheaper option is to buy a space saver and stick it in the boot

    there is no way while my rear end points dow nthat i would buy a car no matter how damn good it is if it didn't come with a damn spare

    fair dinkum i thought it was strange that when you bought a LADA that the glovebox was an option but at least it was available as an option

    is a spare a 180 option or you just drive out of the yard and suffer ?

    I didn't realise until the dealer was giving me the demo during pick up. At first I thought he said that there was a space saver but then hhmm nope no spacer- only 2 tyre repair can. I think the reason is because the gti180 has a different exhaust (much bigger that the normal gti). As a result it took over the space where the space tyre was kept (underneath the boot).

    I think the space saver would be the best (cheapest) option at the moment.

    I don't know why the "replace" .. does the sealant destroy the tyre .. guess it's hard to find that hole when it's been plugged with sealant !

    PS: only under certain circumstances should one plug a puncture ... never in the sidewall.

    i never put one in a sidewall but i carry a plug kit in the car and have used it

    easy as pie to use and very handy and never had a trouble with them

    sometimes and i mean only sometimes is there a slight imbalance but that's it

    whay the only under certain circumstances ????

    Space savers are expensive compared to normal steel wheels I found out! If you want a proper spare, I'd suggest hunting down a steel wheel off a 206XT or XR that someone's upgraded to have alloys or something like that

    Except there goes more of your limited boot space

    Try $350-400 each. Makes the 180 a lot more expensive to run then the 138. I bet the avaerage life of the P7000 shod 180 is going to be 20k.

    I'm nervous enough about rocks and dirt in my 306XSi with 55 profile tyres. I still drive on it though

    I tell you what though guys, for dirt roads you need a 504 - they're a sheer delight None of this new car stuff to worry about

    I run a very similar size, in 215/45R17 and have driven on dirt roads. Except my Contis cost $380 a tyre! The Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 is around $260, which is reasonable in that size.

    Call a tyre place like Brendon or Bob Jane and ask if the sealant permanently damages the tyre.

    as far as i know the sealent won't damage the tyre but they need to use special solvents to clean it off.

    for safety reasons, if there's a puncture, especially on a performance car, I'd replace it instead. Also, insurance company might not cover you next time if they pick on you, so really check it out first.
