All,

I've had a warning that back back left tyre pressure is low so I checked the tyre and looks like I've got a nail.

Will this have to be changed?

Thanks

It'll depend on where the nail is.  Centre part of tread it can be fixed,  near the tyres shoulder probably not, sidewall definitely not.

Bad luck!, You may be able to get it repaired, a Tyre centre can advise if it's repairable, where abouts in the tyre is the Nail.

It's on the back left and towards the inside of the car if that makes sense. Maybe a few inches off the edge.

Wonder in I could take out tyre insurance and claim after a few weeks?

Wish I'd have got it now ☹

It doesn't cost much to have a puncture repaired.  Sounds like you should be able to get it repaired.

Trying to upload a picture but it won't let me. Are you allowed to repair them on these?

Hi XZ4 - would it be possible to edit your image thread putting a link to my instructions to using the forum image upload option where you mention 'tree' in the first sentence in case it helps people?
http://www.evoqueownersclub.co.uk/forum/uploading-images-to-the-forum_topic13891.html

PS. In the 'tips' section I mention:
I think the forum s/w might not show the browse/upload options for some new users from what I've read? Perhaps an Admin can confirm? I guess the forum is setup like this to stop instant spamming - but obviously this causes issues/confusion if it does work like this as newcomers are often asked to post photos ASAP...

I wonder it the OP is being caught with this?

That looks repairable to me. About £20 at your local tyre dealer.
Make a point of asking them to be very careful of your new alloy wheels, they are easily damaged.

I agree with CBW.

I went through a run of picking up nails near the side of the tread where they can't legally be repaired (worked out expensive!). Yours looks safe though Smile

Worry not Leilar I had just the same thing a few weeks ago and it was repaired easily at a local garage for £22.68.

The OEM Continentals on the Evoque might be prone to punctures! Rear tyres tend to catch nails and screws thrown up by the front tyres and there's not much you can do about it.

They can all be repaired.



If the nail is in the middle area, it is what is called a minor repair and can be done by the likes of Kwikfit.

If it is in the outer part of the tyre it is what is called a major repair and has to be sent away to a specialist for repair. This is common on trucks and tractors, much less so on cars where the tyre is often just replaced.

Have a look here for an example of a place that will do a major repair: GF Tyre Solutions - make sure you read to the bottom of the page.

Music to my ears guys. Someone in my work has managed to get Halfords to fix it for me for free later. Thank god!

What's your thoughts on tyre insurance? I've found both gap insurance.co.uk or totallossgap.co.uk

Would you recommend one? Thanks

Tyre insurance is fine if your risk adverse and want to ensure everything in case the worst happens.
I’ve done almost 60,000 miles on my original tyres with no punches or damage. Therefore tyre insurance for me would have been a waste of money.

I have Tyre Insurance. Paid for itself with my previous Evoque. Fortunately not needed so far with this one but every car I’ve had has had at least one puncture and almost always unrepairable (except one). Only thing I didn’t need to use last time was the alloy wheel insurance, but not got it on this one as I’ve got diamond cut wheels which aren’t covered.

On the other hand, I fitted a brand new set of Pirelli Scorpion Verde's, did less than 300 miles and got a nail in the shoulder of one of them. Unrepairable so I had to buy another one.

It wasn't unrepairable, it was just unrepairable by your local tyre shop who only do minor repairs.
