Flat tyre after 5000kms... What to do?

Yesterday wasn't my day... Got my KX-S late May from Motorama. Now 5000k'ish... Tyre (rear-right) suddenly went flat when I was driving.

Rang RACQ and got it replaced with the spare.

The puncture is weird, on the inner side wall of the tyre... Does this suggest anything? Is it fixable? Don't tyres come with any warranty?

Sorry for the many questions.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks mate. Gotta look for a new tyre then.

Yeah, it really really sucks. I got a puncture in the sidewall of my ~1000km old RE001 the other month. That was a $280 waste of a tire.

The oem tyre are $$$, unless you can find it cheap via ebay when others upgrade to 20" or the like.

Also ive had 2 punctures luckily both were repairable...Though $27.50 each time. Maybe as it will be a spare, when one of us upgrades to new tyres and has a spare at the store, maybe they can give it to you as it will only be a spare anyway??

I'll be replacing mine december onward or when the fronts are worn, could be longer.

Yeah, that would be ideal for me. I would owe whoever spare that to me a lot of beers:)

Cut the tyre in half, paint it white, and use the 2 halves to frame the edge of your driveway. :)

That's very interesting. I might do that. Speaking of driveway, I have very annoying stains left by tyre spray...:( Is there any effective way of cleaning that?
