Is A048 a steel belted radials?

I just have got a nail in my A048, can regular needle & thread fix it? Or any special way to fix it?

The next problem is the car got no jack:(

What is torque for lock the wheel nuts?

I believe so.

Regular tire patch will fix it. Either the plug type or the patch type. I've done the plug type myself.

That's what the hardware store is for. Or the auto parts store.

A combination patch-plug is the best way to repair it (unless it's on the sidewall) but the tire needs to come off the wheel to do that. I wouldn't do any "spirited" or track driving on a repaired tire. What I'd really like to see is the needle & thread repair rotfl. I hope you have a thimble :D.

105 Nm, just in case your torque wrench is so inclined ;).

I plugged my tire and used a can of fix a flat and drove on it for about a month before getting new tires. I was due for new tires anyways. I now keep one of these kits in my car along with a can of fix a flat and an air compressor.
