My X100D only has about 6400 miles on it, and the tires were in great shape until I got a nail in the left-rear tire yesterday. It's right in the middle of the tread and looks totally repairable, but two tire shops (one Tires Plus, one Tire Kingdom) refused to repair it today. They both said it looked eminently repairable... but then said they won't touch a Conti Silent tire due to the inner foam layer and both insisted I had to buy a new tire. I'm taking the weekend to get my facts straight, and I'd appreciate any help y'all can offer. I am finding some information online that says they can be repaired, it just takes more work and some tire shops don't like to do it (or just find it a good excuse to try to force you to buy another tire). Can a puncture in one of these tires be repaired, albeit with more work than usual? If so, is there something from Continental Tires that I can print out to take with me to a tire shop to show them that yes, it can and should be done? Of course I'll also look for other installers that would be willing to do it (and any recommendations welcome). But mostly I want to make sure I'm doing the right thing by trying to repair the tire. Thanks in advance for any help y'all can offer.
