Tire Integrity Compromised

Hi first puncture in my GP4000, no drama to speak of however my question is, once the tire wall has been penetrated, :oops: (I have put a patch on the inside of the tire to get me home) is the tire still good, more to the point safe?

Your input gratefully received

    If it's a small cut (5mm or less) then a patch of some sort on the inside will be ok.
    Larger than 5mm probably not, it's up to you :wink:
