Driving on a flat tyre not only compromises your safety but doubles the chance of complete tyre replacement. Technicians at TopGear safely and professionally repair puncture to get you back on the road in no time.

What Causes A Flat Tire?

A flat tire is a deflated pneumatic tire, which can cause the rim of the wheel to ride on the tire tread or the ground potentially resulting in loss of control of the vehicle or irreparable damage to the tire. The most common cause of a flat tire is puncturing of the tire by a sharp object, such as a nail or pin, letting the air escape. Depending on the size of the puncture, the tire may deflate slowly or rapidly.

Signs of Puncture

  • Loss of tyre pressure or immediate tyre deflation.
  • Wheels wobbling or shuddering.
  • Difficulty in steering the car.

I needed three new tyres for my camper trailer. He ordered them and they arrived the next day like he said. The staff changed all three in under 20mins. I got three different quotes and these guys were the cheapest. Great price, great service. Thank you

Great service and very friendly!
Mauro Montagner
The magic starts with a smile and how can I help? Bought new tyres for an Astra sedan and arranged a further wheel balance for my Disco and GLC. Great advice on the new tyres and all completed without fuss and at a fair price. There might be cheaper (likely nastier) out there, but I know I can trust the advice/fitting and why I will keep ciming back to Was and the team at TopGear.

Tyre Puncture Repair In Preston & Surrounding Areas

Repairing experts at TopGear will remove the tyre from the wheel to assess the damage, mend the puncture, refit the tyre, and at last balance your wheels, ensuring a safer drive.

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.
