MOBILE PUNCTURE REPAIR

A PUNCTURED TYRE SHOULD NOT BE REPAIRED IF IT:

  • HAS BEEN DAMAGED BY DRIVING ON WHEN FLAT
  • IS LEAKING FROM A PREVIOUS REPAIR
  • IS BELOW THE LEGAL LIMIT OF 1.6mm
  • HAS A INJURY HOLE IN EXCESS OF 6mm IN DIAMETER
  • APPEARS THAT THE TYRE RUBBER HAS DETEROIRATED
  • HAS EXPOSED CONSTRUCTION CORDS
  • MEANS THE REPAIR WOULD OVERLAP A PREVIOUS ONE

MOBILE TYRES WILL ALWAYS AIM TO REPAIR A CUSTOMERS PUNCTURED TYRE, WHILST SOME OTHER TYRE DEALERS WILL TRY TO GET YOU TO BUY A NEW REPLACEMENT EVEN THOUGH THE PUNCTURE COULD BE REPAIRED. THE MAIN REASON THAT A TYRE CANNOT BE FIXED IS THAT THE TYRE IS DRIVEN ON WHEN IT IS FLAT OR VERY LOW IN PRESSURE RESULTING IN INTERNAL DAMAGE SO IF YOU DEVELOP A PUNCTURE AND YOU HAVE TO DRIVE ON IT THEN YOU WILL NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE TOPPED UP UNTIL YOU CAN GET IT LOOKED AT.

I TAKE PRIDE WITH THE QUALITY OF MY TYRE REPAIRS AND WHILST SOME TYRE REPAIRERS ONLY PATCH THE INJURY HOLE ITSELF WHICH PREVENTS THE AIR FROM ESCAPING IT STILL ALLOWS AIR AND WATER TO PENETRATE THE TYRE WHICH RUSTS THE STEEL BELT IN THE TYRE CASING CAUSING IT TO SLOWLY WEAKEN AND DISTORT WHICH COULD LEAD TO TYRE FAILURE.

I USE A PLUG PATCH SYSTEM WHICH ARE APPLIED FROM THE INSIDE OF THE TYRE AND ARE PULLED THROUGH THE HOLE, THESE ARE THE BEST TYPE TO USE AS THEY PLUG THE HOLE CAUSED BY THE NAIL OR SCREW AND SO PREVENT AIR AND WATER GETTING INTO THE TYRE LINING THEY ARE STRONG AND PLACE NO RESTRICTION ON THE TYRE USAGE.
