Could you not have had it repaired; or was the remaining life span not worth it?

The other side had a slow puncture anyway so was sensible to just replace both but this one had suffered too much I think. The hole was massive! :)

Difficult to see but looks like something from a cordless nail gun used in construction framing. Been near any construction sites?

Thanks a lot guys!
There's a house being done up in my road and I think its come from them. My gardener who lives in the same road has had 2 punctures himself this month and my wife also got one a month ago.
Wouldn't be so bad but the Merc has got 21's and the Porker has got 19's :mad:
