    bit annyoed as my (new) tyre keeps going flat, very slowly (few days to a week before it was noticeable). took the rhe wheel off yesterday and there is a medium sized nail near the middle of the tread. does anyone know which tyre places do repairs (just tyres, kwik fit, hi-q are near enough) and if it would be worth it? (tyre cost £60 ish, and is only a month old).

    Any place that sells tyres will be able to fix that problem, no need for a new tyre :)

    I had my tyre fixed at a Bell's autocenter in Swindon, Cost #15 and took 10 minutes.

    Remember that not all tyres can be repaired.
    I took my car in as I'd noticed what I thought was a nail head sticking out of one of the rear tyres.
    This was on my new car, less than 2000 miles on each tyre.
    Got to the place and what looked like a nail head was actually a screw head.
    What looked like "sticking out" was actually "sticking out after ripping down the tyre first".
    End result - brand new tyre and not a nice cheap repair :(
