When I went out to the car this morning, I found the rear offside tyre completely flat. I inflated it with the emergency kit and drove to my nearest ATS depot. There, I was told that because I had inflated the tyre with glue, I would have to have a new tyre for which they quoted £176 including fitting. I do have spare wheels and I now wish I had not used the emergency tyre kit.

Is this common practice that a new tyre is required whenever one of these aerosol kits is deployed?
Most tyre places overcharge you if you walk in with a problem. It is best to get a qupte through the internet before walking in to the branch. You will see that the same tyre they sell chepaer on the internet.
The extent of the damage usually dictates the decision to replace or repair the tyre.
