Hi guys,

After putting 3,000km on my '09 997.2 PDK, I discovered earlier that my rear tire was punctured by a nail. The puncture is on the area where the treads are (not on the side wall). Based on this, do I need to replace the tire even if the damage can be repaired by vulcanizing it? Once vulcanized, is it still safe to go high speeds on the car?

Godspeed!

I believe it is always considered safer to replace the damaged tire. A patch can be used, of course, but then the tire no longer hold its "speed rating". If you do have it patched, make sure the tire is removed from the rim, inspected, and patched from the inside. If you do a search, I am sure you will find previous posts on this problem.

Sucks.

Replace the tire.

Cost of ownership.

Your car can do well over 160 MPH. Better safe than sorry. People are counting on you.
