Anyone know of where I could go right now to replace a semi-flat tyre? I can still drive the car, so I don't need/want to call AAA or any other towing hotline.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

If the leak is not very fast, just go to a petrol station and over pump the tyre pressure to say 300 or 350 kPa (? not sure if the unit of measurement is correct) instead of the normal 200/210 kPa. Then let it leak overnight and get it repair during the day time.

balestier. in front of blk 104. but do note the price is a bit high. they like to chop carrot head. but no choice. they are the only ones near my house that open 24hr. daytime they no business one. nighttime a lot of business. even tow trucks sometimes bring people there directly.
thanks man! luckily my tyres are small...

its always good to have a $5 tire repair kit. it has a metal tool and rubber inserts. a one min job and you can even carry on driving home from malaysia. that is, if its a small puncture caused by a small nail. But pls do the diy repair with safety in mind.

For a major cut or a puncture caused by a large object, do not attempt to pull out the object as it can send the object (eg a big metal bolt) fly in any direction.


Best call AA or refer to the insurance document for road assistance service number. Remember, many people died on the highway while fixing a tire. the on coming traffic just sweep him/her off the feet and kill the person instantly.

Dont fill it with air. It will make the air leak out faster. You wont even reach home before the tyre is totally flat.
I did fill up with air before for small leak with the nail intact and it survived till the next morning for me to go to the tyre shop. This is also what the type mechanic advice. Have you tried and turn up like what you indicated?

Never ever remove the nail for safety reason and it will flatten the tyre immediately.
