Factors to consider before tyre repair
As per the British Standards, tyre repair can only be conducted within the central three-fourth of the tread, termed as “minor repair area.” The exact puncture location plays a significant role in deciding whether a tyres is repairable or a replacement is necessary.
Furthermore, the puncture size is another deciding factor, and if the same is equal or beyond 6 mm in diameter, you will be advised for a tyre replacement.
Many of our clients enquire whether damages in the tyre sidewall are repairable. The answer is ‘no.’ As said earlier, a puncture location beyond the ‘minor repair area’ is not permissible for repairing.
The sidewall undergoes a significant amount of stress daily, and so any fixation can have an adverse effect on the tyre’s structural integrity. One more reason is that the tyre sidewall undergoes a maximum amount of flex, making it difficult for a repair patch to remain affixed for a prolonged period.
Technicians at our end are well-accustomed to the BS AU 159 guidelines will only conduct tyre repairs after carrying out a thorough inspection.
If the damaged tyre is non-repairable, you will unfortunately have to invest in a new tyre.
But please don’t worry. If you wish, we will be happy to help you to find a suitable one for your vehicle and your budget.
