As long as the damage is not too large and not to the sidewall then it can be repaired. Ensure that it is done by a reputable company since the wheel may have to be re-balanced plus stand up to potentially high speeds.

depends on how much the wheel is damaged...


why don´t you buy new tyres? it´s quite dangerous going 250kmh with a repaired wheel... think of that!


spend some dollars and buy new ones!

If its in the middle of the tire or anywher eon the tread its fine. Run flats are designed to have very sitff sidewalls so they dont collaps whle your driving.

Any tire can be fixed, as long is jsut a nail.
