FAQs & Links
We are governed by British Standards for the repair of punctures but, if a tyres worth fixing, we will fix it! Our preferred method is to fix the puncture with a plug style repair, as opposed to stick on patches.
One image on this page shows an unrepairable puncture, this is because a tyre has a reinforced band around the inside of the treaded area. The shoulder and side wall areas do not have the same reinforcement, so the tyre can only be mended if the nail/screw/sharp object enters in the treaded area of the tyre. The other image shows the area which has to have a major repair instead of a standard repair if all you want is to repair it and not replace it. This means you will be without the tyre for a few days whilst it goes away to be mended.
