I picked up a puncture this past week. My rear right tyre got screwed (literally). A lonely 18mm screw decided to lodge itself deep into my tyre. There is a joke in here somewhere if I put a little more thought into this post.
Fortunately I was able to drive on the tyre without much air escaping, but had decided to take it into Kwik-fit and have them look at it. Our local Kwik-Fit is in London Road (next to Brent School), Stone DA2 6AS, but here is a short breakdown of events this morning.
- 8:45am – Called Kwik-Fit and explained to Matt the problem. Matt was very helpful and mentioned the tyre might be able to be repaired, but I should bring it in for a check and peace of mind. He also told me the price for a repair and new tyre. He told me I could bring in my car now. I told him I would be there in 15 minutes.
- 9:00am - Drove my car onto the ramp.
- 9:01am – 9:14am – Matt removed the screw from the inner wall, unfortunately it could not be repaired, so a new tyre was put on (the same as all my other 3 month old tyres. Sad but true, we only just replaced them).
- 9:15am – Paid and drove home.
- 9:20am – Home.
