Puncture Repairs

If you suffer a puncture we can come to you to repair the tyre (if repairable) we may ask you for your tyre size as we may want we want to bring a replacement tyre for if a repair can not be carried out,

Reasons we can't fix a puncture:

If the tyre displays any of the following characteristics, a puncture repair should not be attempted;

  • Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread throughout the entire circumference)
  • Secondary damage - caused by the injuring object
  • Ageing/deterioration of tyre rubber
  • Bead damage
  • Exposed cords
  • Faulty/poor previous repairs 

Safety Information

British Standard BSAU159 also defines the requirements for safe minor car tyre puncture repair and its proximity to the sidewall. To remain compliant, we are only able to carry out tyre repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre (known as the minor repair area). If the puncture is situated outside of this area it is deemed too close to the sidewall to guarantee a safe and lasting minor repair.
