Can My Punctured Tyre Be Repaired?
At Tyre Hub, we understand that repairing a puncture is more cost-effective than replacing it. Understandably, you'd want to try and fix that tyre rather than replace it, especially if you've not long bought the offending tyre.
You can rely on Tyre Hub to give you a fair assessment of your damaged tyre and determine whether or not the tyre can be saved.
At Tyre Hub, we will always try to repair a punctured tyre; however, there are situations when this isn't possible, including:
- Illegal Tread Depth: When the tyre has under 1.6mm of tread across the central 3/4 of the tyre tread throughout the whole circumference.
- Run Flat Damage: When the tyre has received any failure to the structural integrity, either on the inside or outside.
- Secondary Damage: When the puncturing object has caused additional damage.
- Poor Tyre Condition: Has the rubber deteriorated due to age?
- Faulty or Poor Previous Repair
