But can we repair all car tyres?
No. As we adhere to the BS AU 159 standards for vehicular safety, we can only repair a tyre if it meets the following criteria:
- Tread depth is at least 1.6mm
- There are no exposed chords in the flat tyre
- The punctured tyre’s sidewalls should be intact
- The size of the puncture is not more than 6 mm
- The tyre’s structural integrity is free from major impacts, etc.
Our team follows a comprehensive procedure to conduct a car puncture repair in Mansfield. Moreover, we use these three techniques to repair a flat tyre:
Plugging: This is perhaps the easiest method to repair a tyre. Plugging also saves time as it does not require un-mounting a tyre. The process begins with attaching a leather piece onto the punctured area with an adhesive. As the adhesive vulcanises, it turns into a permanent seal due to the heat generated when the tyre rolls.
Patching: The process is quite similar to plugging. However, it requires the tyre to be un-mounted from the vehicle for an accurate and error-free repair.
Plug and patch: This stands out as our most advanced procedure to repair punctures. First, our experts attach a leather tail and rubber patch to the damaged area. Then, they thread the leather tail across the damaged area and plug in the gap.
Now that you know us, we hope you will no longer need to search for ‘puncture repair near me’.
