In the end, despite following all the above, if may well be that the tyre won't run dead straight on the rim when refitted. However, it will still perform perfectly well as a spare at worst.

Thats all down to how neat and equal you stitch the tyre up isn't it Ned?


In theory yes - but they're never QUITE the same again no matter how much care is taken. Even when I took ages ensuring everything lined up etc. there was more often than not a 'kick' in the tread afterwards. I very rarely raced on a repaired tub - but I certainly trained on them! Couldn't afford not to!
