We always repair a tyre where possible.
Requirements - that the repair meets the specifications to be in-line with the tyre manufacturers repair policy and that it is safe and legal to do so.
Until recently our policy on RUNFLAT tyres was not to repair.
However, recently some tyre manufacturers have advised that under the correct circumstances their RUNFLAT tyres may be repaired. Other manufacturers have continued to advise NEVER to repair their Self Supporting or RUNFLAT tyres.
The reason for this difference in policy is that the tyres are constructed differently.
Some manufacturers have not published a repair policy. We cannot therefore repair these tyres.
Criteria to meet for repair includes:-
- -Travelled no more than 50 miles on the damaged tyre
- -Not exceeded 30mph
- -Inspection shows no sign of weakness i.e deformation, distortion or loose rubber.
