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.
