Off course they can, as long as:

1. The repair is of the more permanent type (do not know how it is called, in Greece we call it ''mushroom'').

2. The tyre (and especially the sidewalls) is not damaged, thus it means that you did not drive with no pressure for more than 2-3 kms.

I have reapired RFT tyres 3 times (2 tyres in the Mini and 1 in the Z4) and never had a problem (and I did somehting like 15.000 kms in a year before changing tyres).
