Went back on Wednesday and they completed the repair with an identical tyre. Cost to company was 154.00. Not cheap !!!!

I read somewhere that RF's can be repaired as in your case when the wall is not damaged, as its the wall that makes them different the face of the tyre can be repaired as a normal tubeless tyre. so I carry a tube of tyre repair you know the stuff so that i won't be damaging the wall by driving on it flat
