    2017 Discovery Td6 First Edition Namib Orange

    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

    Well apparently they can be repaired. I put up photos last year showing the inner foam with a patch on it.

    Was a 22" Pirelli Scorpion tyre on ebay. Same ones that we have.

    Type in "Tyre Wear" in the search banner above and you can see the photos Thumbs Up

    I have a couple of Scorpion Verde 285x40x22's sitting the garage in case I need one (bought at good prices instead of waiting until I actually needed one) and the foam is just a 10/12mm foam pad "glued" around the inner area of the tyre under the tread section. I'd say if you had a puncture you could just trim back an area of foam until you could see the rubber and then fix the puncture. (^^^ exactly as per your pics), as these tyres arent runflats.

    Al is correct - that was exactly what happened with one of our tyres which had a nail in it a few weeks ago. The fitter removed a small piece of the foam, removed the nail and repaired the tyre.

    Was pleasantly surprised and relieved that a new tyre wasn't needed Bow down

    According to the second post above, they are run flats. Can anyone confirm for definite if they are or not, or are they getting confused with a similar tyre, thanks.

    Defo not run flats. The foam may give the temporary false resilience of a RF, but give it a couple of hundred yards with no air in it and you’ll shred the rubber.

    The D5 size (at 285/40 x22) is only availible as a PNCS tyre, so the niose cancelling version, and NOT the runflat version in this size. It may be availible in other Verde sizes but not for the 22's

    Runflats seem to be 18"'s.

    Thanks for clearing that chaps Thumbs Up
    It all depends on where you go to get the tyre fixed. Some garages will plug or patch the tyre where others will try their luck and fleece you for a brand new one.
