Monica is now safe n' sound :) After waiting an hour i decided to phone the RAC and sign up for roadside assist. With the luck i am having on Perth streets and with the amount of nails i'm running over and having to do a tyre puncture repair (6 in 3 years)... looks like i am going to need it. Gutted because the tyre has only seen 2000km worth of pavement :(

A big thankyou to the driver in the Toyota Hilux who pulled over and offered his assistance and hospitality. If you're out there shoot me a pm - i'd like to buy you a beer

Can you plug the tyre? It will last for another few thousand kms :)

I had already plugged it, however it was still leaking air very slowly (approx. 10psi every 24 hours). On closer inspection tonight, it looks like the plug actually popped right out!! ! Piece of mind, i will just get another tyre :(

You need to get it plugged properly from inside with a mushroom plug :)
