As title. Curious to know as I learned most places do the cold vulcanising method, which limits the options for repairing punctures away from the centre tread. But fitters send discarded tyres away to a place or two where hot vulcanising is used to fully repair and bake the tyre so that it's properties are as good as new, with the speed and load ratings intact (depends on tyre and size of puncture, of course). These are then re-sold. I'm considering doing this in future as punctures on shoulders can apparently be repaired legally and to the required British Standard - for £20-£25 a time! Why would I do this? Because I've had shoulder punctures three times in less than three years. But never a puncture in 20+ years of Dutch, Belgian, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swiss driving! Has anyone on here used the method, and if so, can they comment please? Thanks.
