I run bridgestone 50A all round that came with car and i have 1 slow puncture i found out today, the 50A is £165 fitted but I'm selling the car in 2 months due to family commitment's and dont want to cripple myself this time of year will a cheap(er) brand and changing out 1 tyre be noticeable as my daily commute?

I personally would say fit another tyre if your getting rid. What size tyre is currently on ? Also, why cant the puncture be repaired ?

std rims so 215/45/17's its a daily drive so need it sorted cant take the risk of the garage saying it cant re repaired and need to order one in, if i can get a tyre fitted for say £100 that will do untill it sold i guess as long as not going muck anythin up

That's why I said just plug it, you can get the kits of eBay for about 6 quid we use them on the plant machinery tyres but av used them on various cars I've had over the years, they were origionally used by the us army, you can even do it yourself

At least take it to a garage and see if they can fix the puncture 1st, don't see the point of buying a new tyre if the puncture can be fixed, also if you put a new tyre on and the other one on the same axle is worn quite a bit it's going to affect the handling especially in the wet.
