possible puncture

So, I've had my rear tyre replaced because of a puncture after 5 months of use, and then another one a month later but now I suspect the front has one too. The best way to test it really would be to put it in water, so the question is, will taking it off and putting it in the bath tub do any damage to the bearings or anything?


And to put it back on, would it be a simple case of wiping with kitchen towel and smearing with copper grease?


Just working out jobs for tomorrow

Also, buy yourself a tyre plugging kit. The way roads are left uncleaned nowadays will end up getting very expensive replacing the tyre each time.

im sure alex said somewhere he is running z rated tyres and they are not allowed to be repaired

 

yup :'(


Alright, thanks guys, I'll try the washing up liquid, and if that fails then I'll just submerge it partially. I really hope its not punctured. I've already spent over £500 on tyres in the past 6 months :/

Really ?


I have z tyres on my z and have plugged the front one because it picked up a screw slap bang in the middle of the tread. I understood the only thing preventing a hole being repaired is if it wasn't within the middle part of the tyre ?

I never knew that either. What's the reason you can't plug them?
