Is this too close to the sidewall for a repair ?

Looks a bit borderline.

The general 'rule of thumb' is it's only repairable when it's in the central 3/4 of the tyre. Outside of that is too close to the side wall.

You'd need to take it in to a repair place and see what they say. One might say no it's too close, others might be ok with it.

IIRC RoT is >1" from edge of a tyre then its repairable

If you could go <1" from the edge, a nail in only 0.5" from the edge would be ok, presume you mean >1" ;)

Pick up my fair share of those in my van and as said had nearer repaired. Just. Think the patch is about an inch in diameter and as long as that is on the flat part of the tyre ie not the side wall then your in luck. I'm sure all garages vary though.
Looks an expensive tyre and as is the way you'll probably want matching tread across the axle so hope you can get it repaired.
