Re: Tyre punctures

It is doubtful that Fiat UK will have much influence on local dealers. They would outsource it to their local favourite, possibly based on price (to them), speed of service, or just convenience of the nearest.

If you mean Fiat breakdown, that will probably depend on the breakdown agent attending, who will choose based on similar criteria as above.

If you have a puncture, you are free to choose. Any local tyre shop should be able to view and advise on repairability of any tyre damage. Although personally, I'd avoid Kwik Fit.

If it helps
I pay 13 for a repair at a small local independant

I know mainstreams charge a hella lot more, i'd avoid Kwik fit like the plague tooo....

Depends if you have a spare..... People like RAC / AA may have a Basic plugging kit to get you going to the nearest, so i cant see why any other breakdown wouldnt

Repairs wise
its gotta be within the center 75% and no larger then 10mm iirc
Anything shoulders - wall - bead wont be touched
If its got a large object like a wheel weight or a large stone - then a repair probably wont seal and wont last
