Can All Tires Be Repaired?
While all tires can be damaged, not all can be repaired. For a tire to be eligible for repair, it must meet the following criteria:
- The damage is on the tread section of the tire.
- The puncture is no larger than 6 mm.
- Tires that have under 1.6mm of tread depth.
The sidewalls of a tire are not rigid enough to properly support a repair.
Larger punctures in the tire can risk leakage, even with a repair. If there is insufficient tread to place the repair on, the repair may not hold properly.
There are three tire repair
options: a tire plug, tire patch, and tire plug patch.
A tire plug fills the puncture hole with some rubber to stop the leak.
A tire patch is a patch on the inside of the tire. It involves removing the tire from the wheel in order to repair it, which provides an opportunity for a technician to better assess the damage.
The recommended repair for most tires is a tire plug and patch combination. The tire plug is placed, and the tire patch ensures the plug remains in place. This ensures a good seal so you can use your tire for longer.
