If you find yourself with a flat tyre, it may be due to a puncture, where an object has either punctured the tyre or an object has embedded itself in the tread of the tyre.
All puncture repairs are carried out to British Standard – BSAU159. This guide defines limits to the location of the repair, the size, how many repairs can be carried out and also recommends materials to be used for the repair.
We will inspect a tyre that appears to have a puncture and check for any additional issues such as:
If the tyre has any of the above issues, due to our safety requirement, we will be unable to carry out a puncture repair.
British Standard BSAU159 defines the requirements for safe minor car puncture repairs and their proximity to the tyre sidewall. To ensure that our repairs are compliant, we are only able to carry out tyre puncture repairs to the central ¾ of the tyre, if it is outside of this area we are unable to guarantee a safe and long lasting repair.
The image below shows our permissible repair area.
Regrettably we are unable to repair runflat tyres as they have a reinforced sidewall, meaning that they can be driven with a puncture for a short time, allowing you time to reach your nearest tyre fitter.
Once a runflat tyre has been punctured, it’s difficult to know if the overall structure of the tyre has been compromised and therefore be safe to continue to drive on.
If you are concerned that your tyre may have a puncture, please book in for a free puncture check and our team of tyre experts will be happy to inspect your tyre.
If we are able to carry out a puncture repair, based on all of the above information, we can quickly repair it and get you back on the road again.
