HOW DO YOU REPAIR A TYRE?
In order to determine whether a tyre can be repaired safely, the tyre must be removed from the wheel and inspected thoroughly inside and out.
Once established that the tyre can be repaired and the damage is located in the allowed repair zone, we will mend the puncture and refit the tyre to the wheel and balance the whole assembly before refitting to the vehicle.
Some types or brands of tyres and damage of tyres cannot be repaired safely according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and should be disposed of if punctured or damaged.
Liquid Puncture sealants should only be used as a temporary repair solution in order to drive at a moderate speed, to a specialist. After a detailed inspection, the specialist will decide whether to repair or replace the damaged tyre.
Before repairing a tyre, a thorough inspection of the tyre must be carried out, since driving on an under-inflated tyre can cause irreversible damage and only a thorough check of the inside of the tyre can determine whether it can be repaired or not.
