My tyre fitter has offered to fix my punctured runflat - is it worth trying?

My local tyre fitters have said they may be able to plug the nail hole in my 245/35 R18 runflat Bridgestone tyre for £16.99. Is it worth trying or should I just bite the bullet and payout for a new tyre?

If they are offering, that's good of them. Worth trying. Because it's a runflat it can't suddenly blow out so is much safer than an ordinary tyre if the plug doesn't hold.
