How Does a Puncture Repair Work?
Modern tyres seem to be stronger and more durable, but if you notice your tyre looking a bit flat, puncture repair becomes inevitable. By far the three most common tyre puncture repair methods include an external repair using tyre string, an internal repair using a repair patch, and an internal repair using a combination repair patch and plug.
Can My Tyre Be Repaired?
Whether a tyre can be repaired or not can only be determined once the tyre has been stripped off the wheel. Damage inspection and the structural integrity of the tyre can then be assessed.
Although some information can be a good indication for the possibility of tyre repair, only a detail assessment of the size and angle of the puncture , along with internal inspection can tell if the possibility of the repair is there. If a tyre suffers from a major puncture to the tread, on the tyre sidewall or the shoulder it will be deemed unrepairable. If this happens, a new tyre will be needed to replace the punctured one.
