We use a plug patch system which provides a permanent repair sealing both the route of the puncture through the tyre and the inner liner.
A puncture can only be repaired where the following criteria is met:
- The puncture has occurred within the repairable zone as shown and described above
- The puncture has a diameter or length of no more than 6mm
- There is no secondary damage including (but not exclusive to): sidewall deterioration caused during under-inflated use, any splits or cuts to the inner liner caused by the puncturing object or bulging to either of the sidewalls.
- There is not more than one puncture within each quadrant of the tyre. (W, Z and Y speed rated tyres can be repaired to a maximum of three times)
- The entry angle of the puncturing object does not allow for safe and proper seating of the stem and patch
- The tyre is of a suitable condition and age with appropriate tread depth.

Tyre Sealants and Temporary Repair Fluids
Where an emergency repair sealant has been used as a temporary 'get home' option, our ability to repair the tyre can be compromised. Certain products can prevent a proper vulcanised seal from forming during our repair processes. It will always be our intention repair any tyre wherever possible however.
