Tubeless Tyre Repair Kits

OK - anyone who read my last post will see a theme here.

I'm searched the web for 30 mins now, and the only tubeless tyre repairing kits I can find are on ebay. I've also found push bike repair kits, but nothing for my landy tyres. Tyrepliers.com.au do have them, but your can't order online and Australia seems a long way to have to post something.

Can anyone point me in the right directions? Its a dangerous place searching on the web, before I knew it I nearly had a new roof tent! And thats not going to help fix a puncture

Cheers

Great thanks Fletch, but .....

.....time for my last stupid question of the day (before I sink into a bottle of red and the wife has to deal with the stupid questions) ....

Can I use that for landy tyres? Just because that is a bike shop...

Great if I can

Thanks again

Cheers

I have not used this kit so can not say if it is any good or not.

I bought a tube repair kit years ago from my local agricultural spares place. came in a little plastic box, with glue, umpteen different sized patches, chalk and the little cheese grater thing for applying the chalk (this stops the excess glue from sticking your freshly repaired tube to the inside of the tyre when you re-assemble and pump it up)

Congratulations and thanks James

Well done on selling the landy mate. I'm glad its gone to a good home. Read the guys blogs and its seems like he needs some good luck! I suppose his bad luck was your good luck.

I'll keep an eye on his blog and see how my alternative life may have been

I've used a set made by Tech, called the "Tech PermaCure Truck Kit" (cat. nr. 216).

This is used by professionals to repair tires, and I've plugged tires both from within, and from the outside (without bothering to take the tyre off the rim) with complete satisfaction. If done correctly, the plugs will outlast the tire.

I see their contact info in Europe is:

Phone: 44 (0) 2892-665721, Fax: 44 (0) 2892-601611

As a local tire repair company gave it to us (and taught us how to use it), I don't know how much the kit actually costs.
