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

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

How is a tyre properly repaired?

  • The tyre 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 tyre plugged. A plug is simply inserted into the punctured area, making it unreliable.
    Tyres should be repaired by a tyre professional.
