A temporary fix to my tire problem was recommended to me by my housemate. Duct tape! The cure all for every problem right?
So apparently he has known a few people who have used duct tape to solve such problems. The trick is to place a piece of duct tape both on the inside and outside of the tire and stick the tape to itself. The tape seems to have a bit of a rough time sticking to the tire though. I'm not extremely comfortable with this fix but I'll test it out and cross my fingers that it will hold at least for a few days. (yes that's white Duct Tape I used)
