Repairing a tyre is not quite as straightforward as you would think.

Our tyre repairs are covered by a British Standard – BSAU159f:1990. The British Standard also defines limits to the location, size and number of repairs that can be carried out and makes recommendations also on the repair materials used.

A tyre is always checked thoroughly before being repaired. If the tyre displays any of the following, it should not be repaired;

  • Illegal tread depth (below 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre tread throughout the entire circumference)
  • Run flat damage – breakdown of the tyre’s structural integrity
  • Secondary damage – caused by the injuring object
  • Ageing/deterioration of tyre rubber
  • Bead damage
  • Exposed cords
  • Faulty/poor previous repairs

If you, or we have any doubts about whether your tyre should be repaired, we will not repair it.
