    Lightbulb RS3 - Tire sealant - can it be removed or do i need a new tire?

    Hey guys
    Got my first nail in the RS3... so annoyed
    The roadside assistance helped, as I dont have a spare, we ended up using the sealant. Question is, do i need a new tire due to the sealant? Can it be cleaned out? The tyre is new and the nail is in the middle of the tyre.

    As the nail is in the flat part of the tread, I would say that it can be repaired. If it was sidewall damage it could not be.
    I would suggest that your tire would be plugged from the inside.

    Thanks, i had it repaired. The tire sealant was removed & wheel re-balanced. Sticky stuff the sealant. Cost $206 from Audi to get a replaced... not the cheapest, but i noticed I have a small air compressor in the boot. Next time, i will get a puncture repair kit, use that to if its simple issue, fingers crossed i get another puncture anytime soon..
