Popular Questions Asked
Do tyre puncture repair kits work?
Depending on the type of puncture, a comprehensive tyre repair kit can handle a number of puncture repairs to provide a safe spare you can drive on. Bear in mind that all puncture repairs are only temporary and you will need to have it checked by your local mechanic or tyre shop.
Ensure that with any repair you have done the tyre is inflated to back to it's recommended pressure. Driving on an underinflated or flat tyre will compromise the structural integrity of the tyre and in most cases you will need to purchase a new tyre even if your tyres have plenty of tread left.
Is tyre sealant a good fix for a flat tyre?
Tyre repair using a sealant has its benefits but once again this type of fix is only temporary and you should never drive more that 80-100 kilometres. Only debris causing small punctures can be repaired this way and it is suggested that you drive straight to a tyre shop to have them determine whether the tyre is repairable or needs replacing.
Do I need a new tyre if I have a puncture?
If the diameter of the puncture is less than 6mm you can go about safely repairing the punctured tyre. Small punctures such as a nail or screw would be possible to repair once you can pull and remove the debris. Larger items that cause more damage may not be repairable and will require a new tyre.
