Hi....welcome to the Club

Usually, in the absence of a full size or space-saver spare wheel then there is a 'get you home' puncture repair kit.

This consists of a tin of spray foam which is introduced into the tyre via the valve and then the air compressor is connected to inflate the tyre to pressure.

Once you have managed to drive to a tyre repair centre then the tyre will usually need to be replaced.

Another option is to use 'Slime' in the tyres which prevents punctures and can be driven with it in the tyre permanently.
