Tire repair, is it possible & how ?

car edito 6 5 tip1 repair 140320 help and advice

If your tire becomes damaged, it may be repaired if:

  • The tire has not been driven on when flat
  • The damage is only on the tread section of your tire (sidewall damage ruins a tire immediately)
  • The puncture is no greater than 6mm
     

How is a tire properly repaired?

  • The tire is demounted and inspected internally as well as externally. It is then patched from the inside and the puncture hole is filled.
  • Do not have your tire plugged. A plug is simply inserted into the punctured area, making it unreliable.
    Tires should be repaired by a tire professional.
