    Default Can these be saved?

    As per title. I've got a new tyre on it's way, but will use these for spares if they can be fixed.

    DHR2 2.4 WT (same tyre, all 3 pics)

    Thanks fellas. Thought as much. Some new thongs might be a good idea though!

    So annoying, they were each only a handful of rides old.

    I`d actually have a go at fixing those . Stitch first and then glue in a rubber patch . Same for the one on the sidewall but rubber patch inside and out - have done this before successfully . Its far enough from the bead that it won`t affect sealing . By rubber patch I mean the better ones that you get in the slime big patch kit . It hurts to have to bin a tyre .

    I've managed to successfully fix a hole that close to head before by putting a patch on the inside, though it would have been no bigger than half the size of the one in your pic. Took a bit of messing around to get it in the right spot but held up well.

    Seth's bike hacks (can't believe I'm giving him a plug...irritates me lots) did an interesting review on tyre repairs. A few different fixes road tested. You might get some ideas there. One of the best results was just lining the tear with an American dollar note.

    That bead tear is toast though.

    He's alright, I think he markets at the more beginner / budget crowd? That jesus fellow he rides with I find a little over the top.

    Skills with Phil were its at! although his handlebar mustache makes him look like a sex offender.

    Agree completely, there is no evidence!
