Having googled for days for a valve repair patch, I stumbled over Tyrepliers
in Australia and placed an order imediately.
This is what I got in the mail today:
For tubed tyres, it is one of the most complete kits I have ever seen. It contains:
-18 patches of three different sizes
-90 deg valve extension
-Chalk (once you have used it, you won't turn back)
-2 valve stems
-Valve removal tool
-2 small internal radial tyre boot patches to repair tears in the tyre carcas (it is in the box, and on the picture - but not listed in the contents)
-2 tubes of glue
It remains to see if the patches and glue is any good, but they do look that they will do the job. Also, I see from the homepage that Arctic Trucks is one of their distributors - good enough for them = good enough for me (if you've seen the Top Gear show where they drive a Toyota to the magnetic north pole, then you know Arctic Trucks)
If there is anything I would have liked to add, it would have been two small bias tyre boot patches, one large radial tyre boot patch, a bias tyre boot patch, a multi purpose patch, plus one more tube of glue/cement. But this kit should get you through as is!
With my tyre irons, soap, WD40, spoke wrench, Gaffa tape, electric pump, third hand and a spare tube - I must say my tyre repair kit is pretty complete - and it makes me feel fuzzy and warm all over. Never needed a bead breaker.
Anything else I should add to my kit?
And, if you know of a better or more complete kit for tubed tyres, please post
Also, if you have any insight into the quality of this brand, then please share.
I've seen even more complete kits than the one above, and they are all from Tyrepliers
Tyrepliers have tons of other kits and gear, also for tubeless, cars, trucks...
