    Foam filled tyres to reduce noise

    Friend has a D5 and picked up a puncture. He took it in to be repaired and was told it could not be repaired as the tyres are filled with foam to reduce noise. Apparently it was a factory option
    Has anyone heard of this, are tyre place taking the pee??

    Are the Pirelli Scorpion Verde all season ?

    If so they have a foam layer to help reduce road noise so they could mean this. They also have a self sealing layer for minor punctures too and are run flats (never knew this).

    Look at the Technology section of the webpage:

    Might well be Continental's 'Contisilent'. More likely to be fitted on the larger wheels so guess its on 22's.
    But yep, totally normal and factory fitted.

    I do think they have the road noise foam, but not the seal inside against punctures as it is nowhere mentioned on the tyres where it does on my summer tyres (other car).

    Mine are 22” Pirelli and I was told they are foam filled to reduce noise hence the £240 cost to replace it Censored however the puncture was a 25mm cut, so as far as a repair goes with theses I don’t know, hopefully they can be repaired
