Car Tyre Puncture Repair

Getting a flat tyre as a result of a puncture is arguably one of the most annoying tyre grievances. However, tyre punctures can be easy to come by – and are caused by a number of things, such as driving over a pothole or hitting a kerb. Tyres can also be punctured by sharp objects such as nails, stones or glass. Such objects can make a small hole in the tyre which can lead to a slow puncture.

The good news is that about half of all flat tyres caused by a puncture can be repaired, avoiding the need for a replacement tyre!

All tyre repairs are, however governed by strict rules imposed by the British Standard (BSAU 159) on how and when a tyre can be repaired. All repairs carried out must comply with these standards. Tyres subject to the following kinds of damage will however be deemed irreparable:

  • Rubber or tread separations
  • Deterioration of the tyre caused by grease or corrosive fluid
  • Marking of the interior rubber as a result of overheating due to under inflation
  • Visible or deformed bead wire
  • Damage larger than regulations allow
